Stop Press II: Golden Oriole!

After today's class Tony, Miles & Anthony set off on the hopeless quest of finding a Golden Oriole at Sammy's Point near Spurn.  They were unlucky there, but did see a Fieldfare (on 23rd of May!), Yellow Wagtails, Wheatears and a Cuckoo.  They went on to Canal Scrape where they were told about the presence of 2 Golden Orioles in the Triangle.  They didn't see much from the hide, but were lucky enough to see the Golden Oriole as they walked along the Canal Zone.  In the words of one of them it was "Magic"!  The Wryneck gang strike again!
