St. Brides to Newgale

St Brides, first stop 2 Shellduck on the beach, which I thought was odd, with a Great Northern Diver out in the bay, a few chiffchaff with 3 very bright willow warblers, in the withies
At Broadhaven there was a bit of a feeding frenzy going on with about 500+ common scoter in the bay, the most I've seen here, the scoter and gulls, actively feeding on something, there were also 4 eider present, 1 male, 1 first winter male and 2 females and a black throated diver in the bay.
At Newgale over the marsh there was a good 30 sand martin, 3 house martin and 4 swallow. On the marsh there was another Shellduck and 2 wigeon with a handful of teal, and then a fall of 7 smart white wagtails with 4 pied wagtail. A Red Kite was foraging at the back of the marsh.
