Waders at Ynys-hir

An amazing high tide roost today at Marian Mawr, the best I've seen in eight-years of watching, 50 waders of eight species, namely: black-tailed godwit 24, redshank 15, lapwing 4, oystercatcher 3, snipe 1, common sandpiper 1, little-ringed plover 1 and ruff 1. With a supporting case of tufted duck, teal and sand martins, not bad at all for a wet June afternoon!
