From Graham Brace: At 3pm this afternoon there were 87 blackwits feeding/slumbering along the tideline in Llangwm at the confluence of the streams from the pill with the river. Blackwits in varying much smaller numbers have been present most days over the last few months but I've never witnessed an 'invasion' of this magnitude in Llangwm. One, unfortunately, had a broken wing so it's survival is doubtful. Also, a common sandpiper was exploring the patches of seaweed nearby.
