Nice group Jeff. This bird seems to like that area. Since December 2011, we (Glamorgan) have had a decent influx of this species, probably the best since 1983/84. So all photos are very important for accuracy in finding out exactly how many there are in the county.
Thank you to all who have posted their photographs and observers who have sent them to me personally.
Note: I have heard that there are over 80 on Shetland alone.
