Today, near Blandford Forum, I saw a sudden flash of yellow from startled bird. It was only a fraction of a second, so I could have mis-seen, but is there the slightest chance it could have been a Golden Oriole?
It could have been worse, you might have thought it was something really rare and then you would have been subjected to a whole load of abuse as is the custom on here ;-)
Shame it was not a Golden Oriole, my favourite bird.
I once made a Wheatear into a Great Grey Shrike, that's probably my worst.
The whole abuse on forums (fora?) thing is so annoying, though. I'm an opera singer, and you should see what people write about singers on YouTube. I've more or less escaped so far, but I imagine it's only a matter of time...
