"All aboard the Wheatear"

There has been a good passage of Wheatears this past week, with double figures on sections of the saltmarsh around the Burry. Mark Newton captured this shot of one bird which has obviously adopted a different migration strategy!

I remember seeing a [Desert] Wheatear in a boat once in West Glamorgan. Long time ago now.

I was working at WWT at the time and could have easily crossed the turbid waters of the Afon Llwchwr to see said bird, but for some idiotic reason I didn't! Double ouch!!
