When I saw it I was all excited and sure that before I could grab the camera it would have been gone......but I was lucky O/\ O/\ :-)

I must add though that Port Edward is not exactly a town ....The sea in front and a nature reserve behind, so it is not actually a +garden bird", but it was in my garden =O: =O:
