Teifi - high November counts

Some high counts of ducks and waders for November Teifi WeBS count.

At high tide there were 460 Wigeon around the estuary. The highest previous count for November was 322 in 2011. Around 200 is more usual. Teal at 68 was a typical November count.
33 Redshank was the highest count since 2009. The high tide was a help to counting of course as they were all pushed to the saltmarsh by the Webley Hotel.
Other waders included 1 Grey Plover, 1 Knot, 12 Dunlin and 3 Bar-tailed Godwit.
A Coot was the only unexpected species on the Teifi Marsh. 4 Goldeneye from the river viewpoint.

Similar numbers and species on a quick look at the Webley again this morning.
