Little Gull again

Little Gulls have become one of my favourite birds after this afternoon. The same adult bird was back at Llanrhystud 'hunting' worms on the ploughed field north of the carpark. It flew right past me a few times and came within 5 metres of me at one point, before heading off south down the coast. What a bird!
 Decent numbers of hirundines all heading north today. Probably c.20 Swallows and c.45 Sand Martins. No birds of note at Cross Inn Forest, but there was a Great Diving Beetle in one of the flooded areas along the track. Also nice to see one of the ponds absolutely teeming with tadpoles.
