Well! well! It never happened here. Despite storm warnings and some heavy rain the high winds failed to materialise around here. Nevertheless we took a trip down to Pembrey Harbour at lunch time just in case. Everything was pretty normal with c250 Oystercatchers, 111 Ringed Plovers, 9 Dunlin and 4 Curlews roosting on the beach. Checking the channel there was just a Great Crested Grebe and then looking towards Burry Port we could pick out 27 Dark-bellied Brent Geese.

Coming home we stopped briefly at Cilsarn Bridge where the river was running even higher. No sign of Otters today but I did count 12 Wigeon.
