I had already seen a Common Sand take off from the rocks near Stone marine and head towards St. David's Bay, and although vismig as pretty slow - not unusual for slight easterlies - it was a good morning, with a raft of 400 Teal also to be seen, some of which dropped into Preston Hill Quarry. None that came close enough could be picked out as something different (Garganey, Shoveler, e.g.), and I'm slightly concerned that being away next week will mean missing the Anas rush, but I'll take this anyway. Little Gull is the 99th species for the year and means I am exactly where i was at this time last year.
