Out in the Cold

Kidwelly Quay

The weather today was bright with no cloud but very cold.  The strong wind made it feel even colder.  We ventured out in the hope of finding a migrant or two but had no success.  We began at Burry port Harbour where the wind had even kept people away.  We found 21 Dunlin, and single Turnstone and Ringed Plover huddled together on a rocky shore.  A big pack of 150 Oystercatchers were close together on the beach and a single Great Crested Grebe flew by.

 We moved on to Kidwelly Quay.  Four Pintail and 6 Red-breasted Mergansers were in the channel albeit distant.  Once again my attention was drawn to a close in Black-tailed Godwit.  Not feeding to day but preening which gave me a chance of more photographs.  Soon the cold drove us home again.
