A trip down south

John and I had an outing to the Teifi marshes and estuary today, but first a walk along Tanybwlch bay where our first Wheatear duly obliged.
I photographed this Sika deer at the start of our tour of the hides at the Teifi marshes, and two and a half hours later on our way back it was still standing in exactly the same spot.  This is not unusual, we were told.
Bird highlights were three Black-tailed Godwits on the riverbank and a male Goldeneye, plus the always welcome Kingfisher (Kingfisher hide).
On the estuary: a Med Gull in summer plumage, 25 Lapwings and 56 Wigeon from the slipway at St Dogmaels, then from the north bank the pick of the waders were four Grey Plover, six Ringed Plover and 28 Dunlin.
