Dyfi and Borth Bog

 A walk to the pill box from the railway crossing at the Leri produced very close views of the female king eider, sitting on the east bank of the Leri, smiling away.  Two greenshank were at the tideline, with good numbers of redshank, dunlin and curlew.  30+ pintail out in the estuary, with several hundred wigeon.
 A short walk in the opposite direction to Glandwr revealed two ringtail hen harriers, one on a post at the edge of the first field and one over, 10+ snipe and 4 goosander on the Leri.  On the sea were c. 20 common scoter and 2 great crested grebe.  No divers though.
