The GBC trip to Goldcliff and Newport Wetlands today gave us 77 species including 14 species of wader. Highlights of the latter were 6 Little Stints, 2 Ruff, 2 Spotted Redshank, and at least 8 Greenshank. A male Marsh Harrier performed well and we had Pere, Kes and a large fem Sparrowhawk plus the impressive white Buzzard. Migrants included 3 Wheatear, a few Yellow Wags seen by some, and at Uskmouth we had a brief Sedge Warbler. All in all a good trip with 18 participants.
