Oxwich Bay

Did my “dead bird” survey this morning.. Unfortunately there were a lot.!! Mixture of lapwings, turnstones & a couple of blackbirds..

Otherwise.. good mixed flock of ringed plovers & sanderlings.. Oystercatchers, common gulls, 1 great crested grebe.. Very quiet on a stunning Spring morning

Bracelet Bay Sea Watch this afternoon

Started with me finding a small pod of 3 harbour porpoise foraging in the outgoing tide race.. Nice! They were being followed by plenty of manxies, several gannets, 1 fulmar, kittiwakes.. And through that scope view flew a skein of 6 common scoter.. Wow.. Plenty of other stuff going up and down channel.. Several GBB gulls, lots of auk species.. 3 rock pipits flew in off the sea.. 1 mead gull in the car park.. along with several herring gull. Raven overhead

Oxwich South pond

nice views of the overwintering ringtail harrier this afternoon.. Also present, buzzard, little grebes, mallard, couple of mute swans, pair of teal,singing Cetti’s, and several chiffchaff,.. We also thought we’d heard and seen a willow warbler
