Llanrhystud - Llansantffraed

On the flooded field at Llanrhystud this morning were two Dunlin and two Greylags, with a Reed Bunting on the fence.  Lots of activity offshore with ca70 Kittiwakes, four Sandwich Terns and 30 plus Gannets heading south in about 20 min.
In the bay at Llansantffraed were at least 40 Turnstones, 37 Oystercatchers, 35 Curlews, six Ringed Plovers, two Sanderlings and a Whimbrel.
Back at Llanrhystud 102 Mediterranean Gulls had gathered on the stubble field.  A steady stream of Swallows were moving south at both sites, with a few Sand and House Martins.
