Around Ynyslas again

Some good high tides this week so I thought I'd try to catch the tail end of the spring wader migration.
Wader numbers up on yesterday, at 155 Dunlin, 45 Ringed Plover, 14 Sanderling and two Whimbrel, plus the Grey Plover. When I was at the point two Choughs flew north overhead.
Very quiet offshore, so I headed to Glandwr.  Usual warblers singing, including Cetti's though it remained unseen, of course.
Most unusual sight was three Cuckoos flying across the bog together, eventually landing in adjacent trees.
