Another distant little bird in the middle of a river.

Well it's actually the same river (the Usk) but a few miles upstream at a great birdwatching place called Llanvihangel Gobion. I've been there before, but this time accessed from a different place (the little village of The Bryn if anyone's interested, which had been recommended by some local birdwatchers). So that's now 4 different ways I've got there over the years.

I've quite a few pictures to come for this day, not many bird ones though, being the end of July!
