Brent Goose

There was no sign of yesterday's Melodious' in Porth Meudwy this morning although two Lesser Whitethroat were present along with 17 Blackcap, 21 Chiffchaff, 2 Willow Warbler and 8 Goldcrest. 

Had a quick look around Pwllheli Harbour this evening. The tide was coming in rapidly and most of the waders had already flown off to roost elsewhere. A couple of Knot fed along the rapidly diminishing mud in the harbour while the Greenshank was still on the Cob Pool with 82 Redshank and 12 Teal. Three Wheatear were around the site.

An adult Pale-bellied Brent Goose by the marina channel was an unusual find, both for the early date and the location. I've seen Brents along the coast near Llanbedrog in the past but never in town.
