Out Anyway

Despite high winds and grey skies I made my way down to Burry Port Harbour.  Walking out to the little lighthouse on the western quay I wondered if any seabirds might be blown in.  No luck there but I did find two winter plumage adult Mediterranean Gulls and 5 distant Brent Geese.

I also called in at Kidwelly Quay where I discovered the Long-billed Dowitcher after a lot of searching amongst 300 Redshanks.  There were also 120 Golden Plovers, 9 Greenshanks and 2 Dunlin.  At the Sewerage Works I also saw a Grey Wagtail.

  1. Those gulls come in if you throw a hand full of crisps on the beach. At least the ones in East Anglia do.
