Mwnt sea-watch

 Quite a gathering at Mwnt today, Arfon, Edward, Luke, Russell and myself, all hoping for a good show in the forecast better weather conditions. Fortunately the forecast rain didn't materialise, unfortunately neither did the wind nor the birds. Initially very slow, but a gradual trickle of good birds was seen.

Highlights were a fabulous juvenile Sabines Gull, 2 Balearic Shearwaters, 6 Arctic Skuas, 2 Little Gulls and 4 Red-throated Divers 

Other birds: 1 each of Pintail, Golden Plover, Peregrine, Kestrel, 3 Knot, 4 Turnstones, 5 Dunlin, 6 Sandwich Terns.
