Mwnt this week

 I spent a couple of days down at Mwnt this week and had a few sightings of interest.

Choughs reached a maximum count of 33 this morning. Anyone not familiar with choughs should get down there! They are so approachable.
There was a flock of house martins around yesterday and this morning - several dozen I would say. Quite a few wheatears around the church this morning which were't there yesterday.
There were at least two sand martins showing interest in the soil cliff above the beach.
A marsh harrier appeared from the Gwbert direction and carried on roughly eastwards until lost from view. It was a female/immature type and was wearing one or two red wing tags.
