Perverse chap that I am, decided to do a short sea-watch and check the high-tide roost before twitching (unsuccessfully) the great snipe.
Very few seabirds (odd gannet, kit and manxy) but about 70 common scoter on the sea.
At Ynyslas a single little stint was amongst the dunlins - a rather neat bird just coming into summer plumage.  Also ca250 dunlin, 100 ringed plover but only 2 sanderlings noted.
4 cattle egrets and the ring-billed gull still present.
