Teifi - Oystercatchers....&...

Oystercatchers are on the move, 40 on Poppit, 70 at the Webley, and 160 at St. Dogmael's Quay at 7am. Also 60 Curlew at the Quay and one calling Whimbrel didn't want to land. Two Common Sandpipers and one Dunlin flew over Patch flying upriver.
Yesterday - a group of three Common Snipe at Creek Hide.

Two juvenile Lesser Whitethroat were the highlights of CES ringing on the Teifi Marsh today, and another season of acro. warbler migration monitoring starts in earnest tomorrow.
