Rhos Point - seabird build up today.

There was an obvious build up of seabirds off Rhos Point this morning with 30+ Red throated Divers spread out offshore between Penrhyn Bay and Colwyn Bay pier, many close inshore. A similar number of Great Crested Grebes were present too with smaller numbers of Red breasted Mergansers, Guillemots and Razorbills. A single drake Eider was off the Point while 5 Kittiwakes were feeding here. Four Purple Sandpipers were in the high tide roost along with 200+ Dunlin.
