Aberaeron, Llanon, Cross Inn Forest

Aberaeron north coast Sunday morning:  Goldfinch, Meadow Pipit, Red Kite, Med Gull,Gannet, Curlew, Oystercatcher, Golden Plover (42), Turnstone (7) and a pale-bellied Brent Goose flying north.
Afternoon had close views of a male Kestrel on a post at Morfa beach car park.  However, decided to head for Cross Inn Forest after hearing crow scarers being set off by the stubble fields.  Linnet, Raven Stonechat, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Goldcrest, Bullfinch and Jay among those recorded.
Back home a female Merlin flew through the back garden after taking a swoop at the neighbours' bird feeders.
