WeBS count this morning at Green Point and Cardiff Heliport bay [week earlier than scheduled Webs due to unsuitable high tide time on 13th].
Green Pt [nice to meet John Aggleton there]: Redshank c.1000, Dunlin c.300, Shelduck 57, Shoveler 10, Teal 39 [mostly on river by Lamby Way], Pintail 6, GBB Gull 2 adults, Cormorant 4, Mallard 12.
Heliport bay: Pintail 60, Curlew 2, Shoveler 30, Oystercatcher 2, Shelduck 12.
The Redshank & Dunlin were initially on the east bank of the river mouth, not their usual spot along the shore and at the tip of Green Pt or just opposite. Something suddenly spooked them and although I wasn’t properly ready with the camera, I did manage a few flight shots.
