I had intended to check the waders at the point this morning , but there was so much of interest between the tern posts and the Leri salt marsh that I stayed there. ( It was sheltered from the wind as well).
Wader counts: Ringed Plover 245, Dunlin 55, Sanderling 8. Curlew Sandpiper 3, Knot 3, Whimbrel 2, Turnstone 1, Little Stint 1.
Also noted were a Med Gull, 5 Mute Swans, up to 12 Sandwich Terns, a Razorbill at the Leri mouth and three early Pintail up the estuary.
A light passage of Swallows involved at least 50 birds.
Not a lot to be seen from the Glandyfi layby except for eight Barnacle Geese and two more Pintail. Swallows continued to move down the estuary.
