Luckily the tide was so high and mist and drizzle so discouraging that the dog walkers were absent for the vital hour of high tide yesterday so I watched 80+ Ringed Plover, c50 Dunlin, 13 Sanderling, 1 Knot and a lone calling whimbrel on the stones at the end of the spit. Dogmaels side was being disturbed by fishermen and dog walkers so all sought refuge in Cere! 3 Sandwich terns were present also but no stint!
Eventually a jack russell arrived but its owner was very pleasant even though I had initially hollared at him full volume to stop and turn round. He couldn't see the birds as they were so hunkered down and camouflaged amongst the pebbles.
