Rhymney Est & Cardiff Heliport bay

Did my WeBS count this morning, which covers Rhymney Estuary at Green Point, and Cardiff Heliport bay. At Green Pt: 700 Redshnak, 800 Dunlin, 27 Teal, 4 Wigeon, 16 Shoveler, 7 Pintail, 96 Shelduck, 3 Coromrant and 30 Mallard.
At Heliport bay a good count of c100 Pintail, 46 Shoveler, 11 Oyc, 6 Shelduck and 8 Turnstone. Some walkers on the beach below the landfill at Green Pt caused the Redshank to flush and at one point a large group landed on the water and started swimming about in a tight group. I’ve seen them do this before. Here’s a link to a short video on my Youtube channel: https://youtu.be/XZOGKYyHs6M
The birds flying around are some of the Dunlin flock. Here’s a link to a vid of that: https://youtu.be/fpjf2FBgBVw
