A little bird has had 'twitchers' all over Wales in flap recently.

Hundreds of people have gathered on the Blorenge, near Abergavenny, to see a marmora's warbler, from the Mediterranean islands.

Ornithologist and former RSPB site manager Alan Davies saw the warbler after setting off from home in Llandudno, Conwy, at 0430 BST.

"This is extremely rare. It's only the fifth one ever to be seen in the UK since ornithology records began in the 1800s and the first one ever to be seen in Wales, without doubt."
