Kidwelly Quay & Burry Port

The first of some trial GBC field trips to locations where social distancing is feasible [as announced on the <Events><Field Trips> page, this one had 7 participants plus myself and Alan Rosney as leaders. We were lucky with the weather. Kidwelly provided a good selection of waders with Common and Green Sandpiper, a juv Ruff, several Greenshank, Dunlin, Ringed Plover and 2-300 Redshank. A couple of us saw a high fly-over Marsh Harrier being mobbed by a crow. At the old ‘harbour’ at Burry Port there were many Sandwich Terns with a few Common Terns amongst the huge flock of gulls on the beach, which included a good number of Mediterranean Gulls, all the ones we noticed being adults. Along the tideline there were 20 or so Sanderling, plus Ringed Plover and Dunlin. A successful first trial then, with a total of 46 species seen. A few photos below.
