Gann, Marloes and Deer Park

2nd early morning visit on the trot.
Gann: 4 Dunlin, 1 Ring plover. 2 Common sandpiper. 2 Snipe. Greenshank and Turnstone. A brief and distant view of a juvenile Golden plover among the Oystercatchers before they were flushed by bait digger. Scoured the shoreline but no sign!
Marloes Mere: 5 Teal, 2 Curlew. Coast path: Lots of juv Goldfinch and Linnets in hedges and weed fields. 6 Dunlin and 10 Ringed plover plus 7 Wheatear in fields above Martin's Haven.
Apart from Dave and Paul not much to be seen on Deer Park. Wind was swinging to a more easterly so things may improve.
