A short late afternoon visit to Lawrenny

We cycled over to Lawrenny this afternoon. The tide was low but numbers of wigeon and teal resting on the mud and in the channels in the Black Mixen area looked quite impressive. There must have been several hundred of each. Waders included at least 500 dunlin (there were probably others hidden in channels beyond our view-point), c.20 black-tailed godwits and a few hundred lapwings but no obvious golden plovers with them. It's a pity that there will be no WeBS counts this month but we'll try and add some counts from stretches of the Cleddau that we can walk to and add these to BirdTrack.
