This am at the bridge 3 Goosanders (2m), a f Goldeneye, a Green Sandpiper at the top end of the island (a favourite site) & a (the?) Greenshank. Elsewhere of note 98 Wigeon (my highest Nov count), 3 Little Egrets, at least 8 Little Grebes (also a lot), 38 Common Gulls.
The main news from Newport recently was the very early trailing off of the Teifi Canadas influx. My highest count in Oct was only 160, the lowest since 2010.
