Ceredigion Bird Race

This coming Bank Holiday Monday a small, intrepid band of birders (Edward O'Connor, Marc Hughes and me!) are going to have a crack at beating the record for the number of different birds seen in Ceredigion in a day. The current record stands at 118 species and to have any hope of topping this score we will need to catch up with a few 'tricky to see in Ceredigion birds'. So with this in mind I have a bit of an ask - do any of you out there know where we might be able to see some of the more challenging species that occur in the county such as Common Sandpiper, Green Woodpecker, Lesser Whitethroat, Marsh Tit, Yellowhammer, Spotted Flycatcher or any other difficult to see birds?

Thanks for your help and we will let you know how we get on.
