Teifi - highlights

Yesterday evening a wander around the marsh produced the first Teal seen for a while...
Tonight four adult Greylags were the highlight amongst one of the three large Canada Geese flocks.
Shelduck creches of 3, 10 and 17 could be found, I guess Shelduckings were hiding at the Jewson site too. 21 Oystercatchers at The Webley, four Curlew and eight Black-headed Gulls are early returning birds.
Adult Willow Tit, Redstart and Lesser Whitethroat were good birds caught yesterday during CES five. The CES ringing site is near the Kingsfisher Pond. A  Dipper from the River View Point was unusual, Dippers are amazingly scarce downstream of Cilgerran village on the Teifi.
