Dyfi pillbox

A brisk walk out to the pillbox at high tide this morning. Barwit and Knot in double figures, a kestrel and 8+ pintail. More surprisingly, two female scaup, one in the ditch and another clambering across the saltmarsh.

The carcasses of several predated lapwing also along the bank. A different fate probably awaited the Lapwing resting on the A44 in Aberystwyth at 5.30 on Thursday evening.
