I was persuaded to go for the Great Spotted Cuckoo at Penally near Tenby, and for once made the correct decision. It showed very well on the last day of its stay. It was good to see it looking so healthy, it was tucking into caterpillars the whole time!

This drake Garganey was one of the first of the year and worth a few minutes trying to get some shots. Unfortunately it could have been just a little bit closer (as always!).

Difficult to believe this is the same bird. The drake Long-tailed Duck at Cheddar Reservoir with the lower image taken at the end of November last year. See what good light does too. I needed headlights for the top photos! I'm now beginning to wonder whether this, is in fact the same bird having seen the photos side by side - what do you think?

On the Quantocks at Triscombe Stone, this Great Grey Shrike showed very well. Maybe the most showy Great Grey Shrike I've seen in the UK.
