Bob and I met up this morning at Ynys-hir for a crack at the Squacco Heron. A few other people in situ so we settled down to wait. After an hour or so I was swearing never to twitch again, as usual on these occasions when there was a call from Martin,, who had just seen the bird flying across the far end of the field.
Luckily I got straight on to it, as it settled first on a fence, then in a tree, still in full view. It was still there when Bob and I left about half an hour later, so everybody got a view.
I was particularly pleased as I missed the first and only previous Ceredigion record, at Aberleri Fields in 2003.
Photo taken by Martin Creasser this morning. As Martin says,it's a record shot, but it shows the bird as we saw it..
