Goldcliff, Gwent – 15th Jul

We had a pleasant GBC trip to Goldcliff yesterday with 8 participants. No other birders there – reflected in that there weren’t many birds! 😁 Waders were pretty disappointing although we did have 6 Ringed Plover, 2 distant and v brief imm Little Ringed Plover, just 2 Blackwits, 1 Common Sanpiper, 4 Dunlin a few Redshank and about 50 Lapwing. We timed it for high tide at 11:27 but that didn’t bring in anything extra. No Short-eared Owl although one was seen recently. The v pale bellied/headed Buzzard was sitting on a post. By 1 p.m. it was getting too hot and we called it a day. Thanks to the folk who attended. Pix below of obliging Pied Wag and Linnet in front of one of the hides, and a peekaboo Greylag.
