Whooper Swan - Teifi

One adult Whooper Swan was found by Jon G late afternoon in the middle of the estuary. Presumably this bird was seen flying north over Gwbert at 16:27.

Still 400+ Wigeon, maybe below normal numbers of Teal....?
Waders continue to impress, with Grey Plover, Greenshank, Bar-tailed Godwit and Knot (max 4) present with the commoner waders in the estuary.

Two of our waders ringed in mid-September, a juvenile Dunlin and a juvenile Knot have been recaptured on the Dyfi since. I guess wandering around Cardigan Bay, whilst migrating south ?

A large adult female Goshawk was seen over Kingfisher Hide on the Reserve this morning by Jon.
