2 ooc Megas in one day!

The mountains overlooking Abergavenny were the scene for 3 intrepid explorers yesterday to brave a buffeting from Ophelia and witness the weird red sun and a smart Rock Thrush from S. Europe. Paul (Leafie) ,Sylvie and I could barely stand upright on times , but it was thrilling to see and much enjoyed. Sorry the pic isn’t the best , but the bird didn’t come very near for us.

    It looked like the moon at first Kev, perhaps I may put a photo on the Mont Blog but not sure if anyone looks at it now!

    Cheers Heather-not surprised you haven’t heard of it, as it lives in S. Med and is VERY RARE here-just blown off course.Only 3 ever in Wales I think and about 17 in England in the last 100 years!!!
