Little Stint, waders, and Dolphins.

Newport this morning -
The juvenile Little Stint with c80 small waders.

Teifi from Patch but mobile,
One Turnstone, 20 Ringed Plover, 6 Dunlin, 9 Sanderling, and a Redshank calling.

The most amazing sighting was two Bottlenosed Dolphins up river of Patch / Webley Hotel.
Talking to other staff from Bay to Remember and local commercial fishermen (47 years knowledge) this would appear to be the first time  the Bn Dolphins have entered the river past the neck at Patch - hopefully they have got out by now. Grey Seals have been up river as far as Cenarth.
