   After an email conversation with a man in Wales, who had Willow Tit locally, we decided to go look.

  We got to the woodland/park near Nelson, Gwent. We found the bridge/feeding station that he had been using too. Lots of birds about, including Blue, Great, Coal, Marsh & Long-tailed Tits, Nuthatch, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Robins, Chaffinches & Treecreepers were seen in the nearly 2 hour wait, before our quarry was finally seen. Sadly, i only got 2 photos, but my Dad saw the bird which had been his bogey bird for a while now!!!

   A drake Lesser Scaup on the way back, at Bryn Bach lake, proved good value, but was photographed into the sun a bit. Then decided to go back out towards the middle of the lake. The bird had been around for a little while, and had been showing well.
