Three Goldeneye and a pair of Goosander from the River Viewpoint. Another pair of Goosander near the estuary mouth, not a wintering spot for them so maybe moving birds.
Lapwings up to 215, a little higher than of late opposite St Dogmael's Quay. Here the best sighting of the day was an Otter swimming / diving with a very large fish moving up-river to the pontoon, where the otter must have remained to eat the meal. An interesting record for the Quay at 3pm.
A final negative record, no Goldeneye or Goosander on either Llys-y-fran or Rosebush Resrs recently. Nor Tufted Duck !!
