A Welcome Anti-climax

Cormorant drying its wings at Burry Port.

Well! well! It never happened here.  Despite storm warnings and some heavy rain the high winds failed to materialise around here.  Nevertheless we took a trip down to Pembrey Harbour at lunch time just in case.  Everything was pretty normal with c250 Oystercatchers, 111 Ringed Plovers, 9 Dunlin and 4 Curlews roosting on the beach.  Checking the channel there was just a Great Crested Grebe and then looking towards Burry Port we could pick out 27 Dark-bellied Brent Geese.

Coming home we stopped briefly at Cilsarn Bridge where the river was running even higher.  No sign of Otters today but I did count 12 Wigeon.
