Teifi Estuary

Nice variety at the estuary mouth just after high tide this morning. Both Black and Bar-tailed Godwits, along with over 100 Oystercatchers and over 200 Lapwing. Around 80 Wigeon and good to find a Red-throated Diver out beyond the surf.
Lots of Gulls around all day, and c5000 mixed Black-headed and Common Gulls(hundreds) roosted on the sea tonight. The usual 2-3000 large Gulls were slow to go the Cardigan Island roost tonight and no Iceland Gull again - presumably commuting via sea from Newquay Fish Factory....
