The Teifi

Most of the following were actually seen in ....or watched from the Ceredigion side today, but are likely to be recorded in Pembs tomorrow...!!

A Water Pipit was feeding with 2+ Rock Pipits at the outflow into the estuary by the Boat Builders at the start of the railings on the Gwbert Rd.
The wintering Greenshank was feeding with the Redshank nearby, and we still have plenty of  Wigeon to search through tomorrow !!

A quite surprising feeding group just beyond the surfers in the estuary mouth. Two Red-throated Divers, 4 Great-crested Grebes and a Slavonian Grebe. This may be a different bird to the 1st w Slav Grebe up river beyond Cardigan -- seen there c4 hours earlier.

Two Tufted Ducks on Mallard Pond are an unusual sight for us.
