A good ten minutes' birding from the Dyfi Bends layby today - single great white egret with little egret providing nice size comparison, ringtail hen harrier over saltmarsh, peregrine on one of the large pieces of 'driftwood' on the saltmarsh, single green sandpiper feeding at water's edge and five smart goosanders on the river.  Oh, and a woodpecker drumming (the parkland type area behind Glandyfi castle looks good for lesser spotted).  The only downside is the buddleia could do with removing from the railway wall, as there are only two places where you can get an unimpeded view now.
