I managed to escape briefly to Cemlyn today. Yesterday Tony had 5 Knot, a Curlew Sand, 6 Golden Plover and a Grey Plover. There were two Swifts there on Friday. Today highlights included 5 Arctic Skuas and Mark S had a Pom off Carmel head. There was a Whimbrel and 5 Wheatears on the Trwyn. But my highlights were non-avian. 5 Risso's Dolphin, Reg Thorpe and an Adder showing well, but all too brief. (The adder, not Reg, he hung around for a bit of a chat).The House Martin numbers over the estate are starting to drop off a little after a max count of 110 birds over Cemaes last Sunday the 6th Sept. Also two fly-by Jays through Cemaes was quite unusual today.
