Nice shot Paul, this bird is right little poser!

Looks like the sightings in NPT involve 2 different birds. Charles and Hilary Hipkin had the Afan Argoed GGS at 16:25 from SS833927 and Paul Tabor had the Margam GGS at 15:55 from SS815887. Only about 4.4km apart but it does seem unlikely to me a GGS would move from one area to another so quickly?
