Well thanks John: they were there! Ynyslas was amazing today with a howling northeaster blasting the sand into every crevice! In contrast , Aber had a flat sea and no wind! Still, in between blasts it was great to see the birds and Harry , of course-guess he had sand sanis too. I include a pic of one Bunting cowering and barely visible through the airborne sand just to give a flavour. Sunny tho'and when the 4 birds found shelter , they looked lovely.
