Tresinwen & Strumble (05 May 14)

Tresinwen - Porthsychan - Old Coastguard - Tresinwen

Best bird of day a Dotterel flying over Tresinwen and the farm at 0930 this morning.  Calling constantly and seemed to head for the crop fields at the head.  A search of the headland fields could not relocate the bird.

Now only one Golden Plover left in the crop fields.  Whimbrel mobile with 3 around the headland plus Adrian's flock moving offshore.  I also had a Red Throated Diver flying East so possibly the same bird.

4 Collard Doves on wires at Tresinwen was unusual.  Later seen in Porthsychan valley.
