Along the coast

A strong passage of Meadow Pipits along the coast at Llanrhystud this morning, into a cold north-easterly.  In the fields, quite a few alba wagtails were all pied and a single Red-throated Diver was on the sea.
At Llanon, two Great Crested Grebes, one winter, one summer plumage.
Back to Aberystwyth where it was warmer and more sheltered.  The odd Lesser Black-back moving north offshore, as were a total of 26 Common Scoter. Two Curlews passed by close inshore and on the sea were a male Goosander and three Red-throated Divers, one of which was in summer plumage.
