Golden Oriole 22/5/13

Well done Dad on finding this female GOLDEN ORIOLE along Cradle Valley, Frog Firle, about 1 mile north of Seaford. He found it at 4.15pm, and I let a couple of people know, apologies to those who I didn't manage to get in contact with, but the rush and bad signal made this difficult.

Anyway, whilst walking back to the car at 7pm I spotted the bird flying above the valley moving NW and out of sight. During the excitement, I remembered to take some pics, poor as they are, it shows it is one....just. Fortunately it was quite close allowing good binocular views.

This species was a very welcome county tick for me.

apologies for the dreadful pics of this female Golden Oriole.
