Rhossili & Llanrhidian GBC trip

Only 8 intrepid souls for our trip to Rhossili and the Worm. The Scoter flock was close to the beach – all Common Scoter with no Velvets found. Off the cliffs there were several Fulmars. Two Purple Sandpipers with Turnstones and 100’s of Oystercatcher. Two Eiders, A Red-throated Diver, Guillemot, Great Crested Grebe and a poss Black throated Diver were off the Worm. On the Vile were Linnets, Goldfinches and Reed Buntings as well as Peregrine and Kestrel. We managed to dodge all the showers. A pleasant, if windy trip. Afterwards we spent a little time at Llanrhidian Marsh until the rain really set in. John Duffy had a Marsh Harrier, and we added Grey Heron, numerous Little Egret, 2 Red Kites and a couple of Snipe. A total of 51 species were seen. Click here to see a trip list. Thanks to all the participants. Happy Christmas one and all.
