Mandarin -- Teifi

NO.... NOT an April 1st joke....
An early visit to the Teifi Marshes failed to find a hoped for Garganey.....
But much better....!!!  A fine drake Mandarin on Kingfisher Pond.

From the River Viewpoint  five Goosander still present. In my early wander this morning, singing Chiffchaffs (21) out-competed the Wrens (14). Singles of Blackcap and Cetti's Warblers singing but a surprise no Willow Warbler.

A popular local sighting.....3 local birders had connected with the Mandarin by 845am.
