Seabirds and waders

c. 300 Dunlin, 150 Ringed Plover, 12 Bar-tailed Godwit, 10 Knot, 6 Sanderling, 4 Turnstone and 1 Grey Plover in the Ynyslas wader roost this morning. Other Dyfi highlights included a single dark Arctic Skua chasing sandwich Terns in the mouth of the estuary, 4 Black Terns heading south and three Red-throated Divers on the sea.

Still c. 250 Med Gulls at Llanon, and a Leach's Petrel heading south passed here was my first of the year.
