Ynyslas and mouth of Dyfi migrants

A definite movement of birds on the Dyfi Estuary this morning with many Wheatears and hirundines moving. Around the Ynyslas area were 40+ Wheatears, 10+ White Wagtails and 250+ Swallows, 20+ House Martins and 10+ Sand Martin. Waders were the highlight though with 150+ Whimbrel, 50+ Bar tailed Godwit, 80+ Golden Plover, Knot, 200+ Ringed Plover and 50+ Dublin. Most of the Whimbrel were moving north but a large flock with Bar tailed Godwit seemed to land in fields inland. 3 Whitethtoat and Sedge Warbler too.
