Borth to Ynyslas

I ended up at the brick-house well after Russell had left, after checking the sea from Borth northwards. A similar mix of birds (no skuas), but there were at least 70 Sandwich Terns, around 30 Common Scoter and a few Razorbills and Guillemots. Highlight was eight Red-throated Divers, four of which I watched as they flew in from the north. A Wheatear was with a light passage of meadow pipits ans soon before I left a short but intensive passage of ca300 House Martins and a few Swallows flew over the brick-house and along the beach, where around 70 of them settled for a time.
