The Snow Bunting remains

Another attempt at the Borth bunting this morning. Arrived to find Andre Morgan there but despite our efforts, no bird.
I carried on to Ynyslas where the dogs were giving Bob his morning exercise. We decided to join forces and try again and this time it showed.  Initially on the beach at the north end, it flew onto the prom and gave good views at close range, attracting the attention of a few passers by, before flying off towards the golf club.
Earlier, there were two Great Crested Grebes at Aberystwyth, and a Purple Sandpiper and Curlew at Upper Borth.
