Ring-billed Gull at Ynyslas

But not seen by me, unfortunately.  I arrived at the tern posts too late this morning. The bird, a 2cy,  had been found by three birders from Carmarthenshire and photographed. Luckily the King Eider was present, as two of them had been at Aberaeron when I went with Bob, the day after it flew off.
Tide in, so I went to the point, to be joined by Russell.
Nothing out of the ordinary, with counts of 235 Dunlin, 34 Ringed Plover, five Sanderling and a Turnstone.  Around 15 Sandwich Terns were feeding offshore: a few had been around the posts earlier.
