Ruffing it on Tregaron Bog

Good selection of passage waders on Tregaron Bog today including 2 Ruff (females), 5 Little Ringed Plover, 3 Ringed Plover, 3 Common Sandpipers and 1 Dunlin. After my visit to the Bog I met up with Paul Bennett at Llanrhystud and we had a good couple of hours and came up with some pretty respectable totals including (approx.) 15 whimbrel, 5 curlew, 5 bar-wit, 20 oystercatcher, 2 redshank, 20 turnstone, 25 ringed plover and 25 dunlin. Also had about 20 (mainly Greenland) wheatears and 15 white wags.
