Broad Haven and Llys-y-fran

Broad Haven high tide: 2 GN divers, 7 RT divers and 25 scoter. A Purple sandpiper and 3 Turnstones sheltering on the big rock at north end of the beach. Llys-y-fran this evening: Good numbers of gulls but nothing unusual that I could see. Perhaps 5000 with the roost forming just behind the trout pens and stretching up to the hide. Majority LBB, 100 Herring gull, 50 BH gull, 6 Common gull and 6 GBB. Greylag with the Canada flock. 6 Teal, 4 Goldeneye and a Kingfisher. A fine male Merlin jinked across the road as I approached the dam.
