Saturday, 5 May 2012

Another largely quiet day with just a scattering of common migrants saw the cold northerly winds persisting. At high tide, 40 Dunlins, four Sanderlings, five Ringed Plovers and six Turnstones gathered in Solfach, with 47 Whimbrels and three Common Sandpipers seen around the Narrows. The Snow Buntining remained on the South end, a male Whinchat made a brief appearance in the wetlands, a female Redstart was seen in Traeth Ffynnon, and a Grasshopper Warbler and 21 Whitethroats were the most noteworthy warblers around. 

 Another problematic Redpoll identification-wise
Sanderling (top), Turnstone (middle) and waders!
