Glandwr and the sea

On my way to meet Bob this morning I stopped off at Borth for a look at the sea.  Not much out there, just a few Gannets and about 130 Manx Shearwaters, then a party of eight Shelduck flew north.
Bob and I met at the railway crossing for the walk to Glandwr, accompanied by Buster.
Nothing on the pool apart from a female Mallard with five young, but on the Leri was a Black-tailed Godwit, a Dunlin and a Common Sandpiper.
On the way back we watched a family of Whitethroats near the railway, three adults and three juvs.
Finished off with a sea watch from the brick sheds on the golf course.  Just a few manxies  and Gannets, but on the beach were 16 Sanderling, three Ringed Plover and, briefly, seven Dunlin.
Then it was off to the Clettwr Cafe for a welcome cup of tea and breakfast.
