No Swans but Tystie saves the day

A look for the 4 Whoopers at St. Nicholas drew an empty field this morning & on the way back from work at 2p.m.
The customary walk at the flagpoles at Fishguard Harbour found the Ad.Med Gull still around (got a pic this time) & a suprising fly over Canada Goose (Patch Year Tick).
Just about to leave when a text from KRM told of 2 Black Guillemots on the Port side of the harbour. Port as in where the ferry goes & not the left side although it is the left side looking from the parrog ! Anyway a quick dash up to the crane found the 2 Tysties , 1 in summer & 1 in winter plumage.Another patch year tick.
