Teifi - Great Skua

A short sea-watch across the mouth of the estuary produced a Great Skua chasing Kittiwakes at 715am. Otherwise quiet except for a continuous stream of manxies.
Of note -- Just out of county, c30 adult Kittiwakes are now roosting on a suitable cliff face on the western end of Cardigan Island, this observation noted last year. Kittiwakes don't breed on the island.

Waders this morning included 2 Turnstone, 12 Ringed Plover, 29 Dunlin and 1 Sanderling.
