Birdwatching poets may be celebrating...

...at the news that a male Marmora's Warbler, only the fifth ever recorded in the UK, has turned up and is in full voice just outside Abergavenny.

The reason? It's on the mountain known as The Blorenge, a name that offers one of the only (possibly the only) full rhyme for "orange". An opportunity not to be missed (although I think Owen Sheers might have got there first).

Exciting! ... and we were only hearing about the view from the Blorenge in John Davies' CADW (Welsh Heritage) talk at the Hay Festival on Tuesday...

Disappointingly, the news services are now reporting the site as Blaenavon. Don't they know how rare that rhyme is?!

Still, the little fella's still singing away, apparently.

It seems to be back on the Blorenge...
