Members of Carmathenshire Bird Club assembled at Pembrey Old Harbour at 5.30pm onwards for the high tide roost. When I arrived there were hordes of Oystercatchers, and already 60 Sandwich Terns and a count had been made of 18 Mediterranean Gulls. Birds kept arriving and included c20 Turnstone, c30 Dunlin and a lone Whimbrel.
The sharp eyes of Gary Harper picked out a distant Gannet and even better a marauding Arctic Skua chasing terns through the estuary. Before we left over a hundred Sandwich Terns had gathered with a single Common Tern.
