Ynyslas and the Cletwr

Very few waders on the rising tide at Ynyslas this morning, apart from Oystercatchers, just a few Curlew (plus 79 on Ynys Tachwedd fields) the odd Redshank and a Grey Plover.
The five pale-bellied Brents flew in from the direction of the point.
I was hoping for a Dipper at the Cletwr, but had to be content with an Otter which swam across the river just below the ford.
Lots of the usual waders at the far end; ca60 Curlews, ca300 Lapwings and a very rough count of around 800 Golden Plover.
