This was the first weekend that Barrie & Anita could get to see the Rock Thrush. It was a “British Tick” for Anita, so I offered them a lift and we set off for the quarry at Pwll Du, Blaenavon on Sunday 29th October. The Rock Thrush was still performing in the disused quarry and “rightly or wrongly” depending on your view point, the bird was thriving on dried meal worms that had been put down by local birders. I’m not sure which camp I sit in here, but certainly without the food being put out, I have a suspicion that the Rock Thrush would have been long gone. Many birders from far and wide have had the pleasure in seeing it and now in it’s 4th week, there were still plenty of admirers turning up. From a photographic point of view, there was absolutely no need for any photographer to miss-behave as the bird was quite happy performing in front of the small crowd.
