Ynyslas and Ynys-hir

 An arctic skua south and a juv marsh harrier in off the sea at the brick-house this morning; otherwise very quiet.

At the point (Ynyslas) 280 sandwich terns, a common tern and small numbers of the commoner waders.

At the Ynys Feurig hide (RSPB Ynys-hir) 5 little stint, 4 green sandpiper, 2 little ringed plovers, a greenshank, a curlew sandpiper and about a dozen each of dunlin and ringed plover.

Heard what I thought was a calling wryneck twice close to the hide but despite running out and scanning everywhere for 15 minutes I could not find anything…..Some you win and some you lose.
