New Quay

 Yesterday (17th) the guillemots were back on the ledges again. A pair of ravens were display flying. There were some fulmars at the Carreg Draenog area. On the same westerly updraft a buzzard was almost stationary while scanning below for prey.

Other sightings over the last few days include a peregrine, chough and coastal kites. In the fields there has been a regular group of about a dozen mistle thrushes and numbers of redwing and song thrushes. Also in the fields around 100 black headed gulls mixed with a few herring gulls and a group of starlings that at times seem to behave in sync with the gulls
