Teifi in the hail

With most birds sheltering or having moved on, few birds to be seen this morning.
The local flock of c92 Barnacle Geese were in the air, Wigeon and Teal I guess are up river on the Marsh. A couple of Little Grebe in the main estuary and two Shag off the Webley. Nine Cormorants upstream at Jewsons taking shelter. The two Bar-tailed Godwits were off the Railings.
Hopefully a more productive visit later...

150 Lapwing lying down into the wind, Curlew and Oystercatchers trying to roost were struggling to stand. Several thousand large gulls, mainly Herring were still flying out to Cardigan lsland to roost, not sure what the smaller species were doing, they weren't making their way to the usual roost on the sea off Poppit - sea too rough.
