This morning there were a similar number of Sandwich Terns there to that seen by Mike the other day. I counted 112. It was good to see so many young birds.
Also, 250 Dunlin and 42 Ringed Plovers and a lone Bar-tailed Godwit flew over and I had a nice long chat with Janet.

Dyfi Ospreys

We took our grandsons to The Dyfi Osprey Project this morning and timed our visit just right.  
We saw all four Ospreys and witnessed Gwynant's first flight.  

Here she is!
