Early high tide at Borth yesterday morning.  Very good from the small pull-in next to the golf course (just north of Borth itself).  Three or four red-throated divers close in (including what appeared to be a juvenile bird), one great crested grebe, razorbill and guillemot close in on the sea, as well as numerous groups of 20 or so flying further out.  A small party (5) of common scoter further out.  Single grey seal and bottle-nosed dolphin.  Very quick look at Ynyslas revealed two whooper swan in the salt marsh east side of the Leri.  Looking very wary (and massive compared to nearby egrets).
