I certainly wasn't particularly lucky with the Pembrokeshire Western Orphean Warbler. I just couldn't get a clear shot of the bird, although people stood right next to me had it without leaves! An excellent twitch though. Good to see so many friendly faces - probably a result of not twitching the bird on the first weekend.

The Black-throated Diver at Chew was seen right at the end of the day - it was nearly dark by the time we got there.

It's been years since there was a Long-tailed Duck at Cheddar Reservoir. This first winter drake showed really well in good light, but has subsequently always been distant. I was lucky.
