Ynyshir, etc

Excuse the delay in posting these sightings, but I've been on holiday in Borth (yes, Borth) for the past couple of days with some old friends from the homeland.
On Wednesday at Ynyshir we had two Green Sandpipers and the Geat White Egret.  The ringtail Hen Harrier that has been around made an appearance over the pools in front of the reception building.
Earlier, a 30 minute seawatch at Aberystwyth produced 55 Gannets and at least 10 Kittiwakes.
Yesterday the male Mandarin was with Mallards on the Ystwyth near the harbour.
