Glandyfi and the Clettwr

With it still drizzling heavily and very poor visibility at 8.15 on the Dyfi estuary I decided to head to the Glandyfi pools.  The first surprise was a Cetti's Warbler calling from the reeds by the main pool.  On theo pool were 10 Sinipe and a few Teal.
On the Leri, three Black-tailed Godwits., a Curlew and a Redshank.  Soon after an adult male Marsh Harrier came in close from the east.  It circled several times giving great views before slowly heading south.
Later the Clettwr was quiet apart from 500 plus Golden Plover and numerous Redwing flying over.
