Bonxie at Aberystwyth

A wet and murky morning on the prom. Very little at sea apart from a a few Gannets and a trickle of Manx Shearwaters (only about 20 in over an hour) until a flock of Kittiwakes appeared out of the gloom from the north, harassed briefly by a Great Skua.  The Kitties dropped onto the sea for a while, and when they got up and continued past the point I  was able to do a fairly acccurate count of  110.
On the beach were 23 Ringed Plover and 15 Turnstones.
