Red-flanked blue tail sighting
On the 10th of october 2010 i had got a text message from cain ( a birding friend of mine) , he told me that morning there was a red-flanked blue tail spotted at the lighthouse. As then i had not bin into it that long so i wasnt at all sure what that bird was. so he picked me up and we went for a look. on the way there, we saw loads of gold crest it was unreal how many they were, i was gobsmacked of how great they looked and how we saw so many in one place. So after a good 10 mins looking at the gold crest we saw the red-flanked blue tail land on a fence post it was so cool, it went away for about a minute then it landed on the same post i got a really good look then it went and that ws the last i saw of it. But evan though it was my first sighting of it i loved every secound of it was such a beautiful bird .Was one of my faveorite wildlife watching outings ever.
