Cemlyn update

Things have definitely taken a turn for the better yesterday and today. Yesterday small groups of sandwich terns had returned to Cemlyn adding their noise to the background noise of Black headed gulls and the occasional mewing of the Mediterranean gull. The 50 plus Golden Plovers are moulting into breeding plumage now and the Whimbrel was still on the Trwyn. Migrant wise it was good to see a flock of 25+ Sand Martins on Tyn Llan pool, with small groups of Swallows moving through all day. Brian Iddon also had House Martin and there had been flocks if upto 400 Meadow Pipits in the area. There are also a few Little egrets on site. Greenshank was still around on Saturday. There were also upto 5 Willow warblers and 5 -  10 White Wagtails yesterday (DW and BI). This morning was even better. I had an early Common Sandpiper on the lagoon inlet. I had at least 1 House Martin with a group of 50 mixed Hirundines. There was at least 10 Willow Warblers and 10  Chiffchaffs around Tyn Llan farm and scrub. Tyn Llan fields held c 500 Meadow Pipits, 3 Skylarks a fine male Ring Ouzel and there were 3 close White wagtails  on the Trwyn beach. As well as lots of Mippets moving through, there were also around 50 Carrion crows and a few Siskins and Redpolls going overhead.
