America - Manic Street Preachers

Another day of great forward progress at home, but little in the way of information regarding the Warbler at Sea Mist on Monday. Seems someone had the idea that about 27 people saw the bird, but the very few I have spoken too really don't know how that number was reached. I will compile a list. It has also been said that there was no 'malice' attached to any of this activity, a suggestion I am still having great difficulty believing.
Anyroad, back to a proper hobbyist and my next trip away. Giving too much detail would, I believe, spoil the impact of what is hoped to be the continuation of the daily Blog, but for now can say that the direction will be WEST and hopefully include countries on the South America mainland that I have not previously visited. With that in prospect, here are a few shots and videos taken during my trips to Colombia and Venezuela, in the hope that some at least might be re-visited.
