The Teifi...Coot !

Little change so far on the Teifi today .....perhaps a few Reed Buntings and Meadow Pipits moving as birds seen in non breeding places.
Yesterday - Saturday, the highlight was a Coot on the river from the River Viewpoint. Coot is just about an annual visitor here !! Two male Red-breasted Mergansers off St Dogmaels Quay and a pair of Goosander on the river above Priory Bridge. Plenty of Sand Martins both feeding on the marsh and coming in off the sea. In 20 mins yesterday 33 Sand Martins and 3 Swallows flew past the Webley in three waves of passage.
