Divers galore

Red-throated Divers were present in numbers down the coast this morning.  I managed a total of 79; 33 off Llanrhystud-Llansantffraed and 46 off Llanon.
Also on the sea were three Great Crested Grebes and two Canada Geese at Llanrhystud and three Wigeon at Llansantffraed. 
52 Curlews in a field near the lime kilns and two Redshank on the flood, with just a single Grey and nine Golden Plover on the beach. 12 Lapwings were in a coastal field south of Llanon and among the hundreds of Black-headed Gulls were two Meds, one with a very smart black hood.
