Spent a couple of hours on the Promenade in the build up to high tide this morning (followed by a walk to More Madryn and then off to Conwy RSPB). Nothing unexpected but still enjoyable with plenty Common Scoters, Common Eider, Red-breasted Megansers and Great crested Grebes were by far the most numerous birds on the sea. A few kittiwakes were a nice year tick. Oystercatchers, Dunlin and Turnstones made up the majority of the waders.
