Bitterns -- Teifi

One Bittern was seen flying across then moving around Kingfisher Pond at 9am this morning. Mid - week 2 Bitterns were reported from there.
One of yesterday's Divers was probably one of the 2 Black-throated  Divers that have been in the bay, 10 Common Scoter too.
High tide at the Webley this morning produced 2 Grey Plover, 1 Bar-tailed Godwit, 23 Redshank, 13 Ringed Plover and 45 Dunlin alongside the Oystercatchers and Curlew.
Poor numbers of large Gulls in the roost this evening, but 3 Med Gulls were present. A pair of Goosander were opposite St. Dogmael's Quay but only 1 from the River Viewpoint, a male.
