High tide at Ynyslas

Met up with Bob,Buster and Dolly this morning for a shortish session.  I had two dark-bellied Brent Geese which mysteriously disappeared just before Bob arrived.
Wildfowl mostly distant, though I managed a Shoveler and a Great Crested Grebe.
Tide very high, which concentrated the small birds together and quite close, around 15 Skylarks, 30 Linnets and a few Reed Bunts.
10 Redshank, two Snipe, a Dunlin and a Sanderling, and over on the fields were 22 Curlews.
We finished off at The turn car park, gazing at the sea: no birds, just the sea.
