On the 3rd of June last year this Marmora`s Warlbler was found near the Blorenge mountain in Gwent. Luckily it stayed until the 15th of June.
The bird was singing, often enabling easy location to it`s whereabouts. It performed well to the crowds ,even building a nest.
On the afternoon it was found I was with Nigel Addicott and Mathew Meechan looking for a Trumpeter Finch in Norfolk, which departed the night before. Having dipped the `Pink Trumpet` this was more than welcome, we managed to get back to see it briefly, but returned for photographs on several occasions.
Never in a million years would we have thought we would ever see one in South Wales!
