Pallas warbler, Rhossili today. PP, PT.

                               At 11:45 this morning at Vine lane leading down from
                               Middleton at approx SS414 877, Paul Tabor and I found
                               this Pallas warbler. It was working it's way north along the
                               hedge and we lost it near a green metal barn. It was very
                               mobile but I managed this short burst of shots before we
                               lost sight of it.

Two mega sprites within the village - the garden reminded me of the Scillies too! Well done to Eddie and both Pauls!!

Drastic crops Jeff, I couldn't see the bird in the camera screen, only when uploaded to the PC.
