Ickle Bunting

Arrived at the hide 20 minutes after it had 'done one' (largely due to the fact I got horribly lost in the uncharted wilds of Forest Farm).  Waited two hours,... and then a bit,... and then out it popped into the unforgiving midday sun.
 
When not sheltering in the hazel hurdles-cum-hedge, the wee fella fed directly in front of the olive-clad throng.  Nice find Messers Powell and Gilmore. 

NB.  I should just take this opportunity to bring the readers attention to the borderline subliminal near prediction of this species in last week's post.  Just one county out.  Bugger.

Thank you sir. Today it was apparently nearly taken by a Sprawk but returned so close I could not focus on it. Tried to string it into a Chestnut-eared Bunting for a short while.....but Little is very nice all the same. And to think I twitched my only other Welsh one on Anglesey!
