Gwent

Main Sighting:
If anyone is interested - I live in Splott Cardiff and have made a few sightings of a bird unknown to me (I'sm not an enthusiast). I know this sounds unlikely but I have searched and searched on the internet and have finally identified this bird as a red whiskered bulbul, which I believe is a native of the Indian sub continent ? This bird obviously lives locally because I can see it most evenings. It has a lovely song and seems quite happy pershing along with the sparrows and blackbirds. I just thought this may be of interest to enthusiasts - please write if you would like to visit. Cheers.
