Bittern for Teifi WeBS

A very quiet Wetland Bird Survey count along the Teifi today. Only 3 species of duck with a low count of 22 Mallard, 204 Wigeon and 62 Teal. Curlew must have all been out on fields as only 9 seen with 2 Black-tailed Godwit. No small waders.
The highlight was a Bittern showing very well from Kingfisher hide late morning. Two have been reported there in the last week. A Kingfisher was in front of the hide for long periods too.
