A few hours at Gwbert

A rare respite in the wind yesterday enabled us to spend a couple of hours at our new site in the dunes at Gwbert.
What looked a promising stream, boggy area and pond last year to draw migrants in has dwindled to a muddy trickle. Wellies not really needed this year.
Just a few Goldcrest and Chaffinch were moving though the site but plenty of migration was visible high overhead.
It is always good to catch a few of the same species to compare moult.
Even common birds are photogenic to a newcomer to ringing. Mike was with us for the first time to see what his little sister gets up to and enjoyed taking some photos including this Dunnock, Goldcrest and Chaffinch.

Garden ringing tomorrow so probably some pictures of Blue Tits coming up......
