River Clwyd Waders

The River Clwyd was teeming with waders this afternoon on the falling tide. Highlight were four cracking Little Stints amongst the 300+ Dunlin. The size difference between the two Ruff had me going for a bit with the Reeve being a lot smaller than the male it was accompanying. A single Culew Sandpiper, 5+ Greenshank, 2 Common sandpiper, a Bar tailed Godwit, 2 Turnstone and 50+ Ringed Plover were alos present. 3 Kingfishers at the mouth of the gele showed superbly. Hundreds of Gulls were scrutinized with just one Med Gull for the hard work. However a darvic ringed Greater Black backed Gull (blue 2CJ) will hopefully have an interesting history. 100+ Cormornat were roosting on the saltmarsh too - quite a spectacle.
Here's a photo to get Rob's juices going......... :-)
