Teifi Marshes & estuary

Sounded like Spring this morning, 4 Cetti's and  4 Chiffchaff singing on the Marshes with c12 Sand Martins feeding overhead. By 6pm the Sand Martin count was up to  35+ and a Jack Snipe was found near Mallard Pond.
Early this morning at the estuary mouth, Skylarks were singing, small flocks of Meadow Pipits were moving and 6 Stonechats appeared to be new arrivals. Two Black-tailed Godwits were likely new arrivals, and the  Common Scoter flock has reduced to two birds in the bay.
