Snow Buntings, etc

Thanks to John's directions, not to mention the sight of Kev's long lens in the distance, I was soon enjoying great views of the Snow Buntings this morning, despite being sandblasted.
On the way a Merlin flew over, followed later by seven Snipe.
I had started at Aberystwyth: 18 Ringed Plover and a Kingfisher at Castle Point, and 27 Gannets
north in 20 minutes.
Even more Gannets at Borth, a minimum of 40 feeding and resting on the sea.  Also a good count of 52 Red-throated Divers, five Great Crested Grebes, ca20 Common Scoter and 15 Wigeon.
At the turn car park, two Sanderling on the beach and a dark-bellied Brent Goose close inshore.
