Teifi - waders

Eight Whimbrels this morning, including five arriving off the sea as a front  arrived from the East.
Yesterday's party of four Bar-tailed Godwits and 35 Dunlin have moved on. A lone Common Sandpiper off the Railings.
The pair of Shoveler have now appeared on Kingfisher Pond, a suggestion of breeding failure?
At least two broods of Mallard seen, though many female Mallards still in hiding, with males in excitement mode !

A male Redstart below Heron Hide yesterday morning.
