Borth Bay and Ynys-hir

Joined forces with Paul Bennett this morning.  Scans from the brickhouse and Borth revealed fewer birds today, though Razorbills still present in large numbers and two Great Crested Grebes had joined at least 12 Red-throated Divers.

Ynys-hir next; my first visit since mid -March.   A minimum of four Great White Egrets, one of which was on the Ceredigion side of the river.  Also from the elevated viewpoint behind Marian Mawr; a Cetti's Warbler (heard by Paul), Kestrel, Shoveler pair, 12 Dunlin and three Green Sandpipers.

A short visit to  the Cletwr produced around 15 Redwings and a couple of Fieldfares.
