Welcome to Crymlyn Burrows

This is the view back along the beach at Crymlyn Burrows, with Baglan in the background. The shingle ridge in the foreground is where all the small waders like to roost on a large incoming tide, just before high tide. You could quite easily go onto the beach think there weren't any present because they blend right in against the stones. At the time of this photo roosting on this ridge were 170 Sanderling, 80 Ringed Plover, 20 Dunlin, 1 Knot and 1 Turnstone.

3 Common Tern above were part of 27 that I counted in the bay at last light.

Some of the Ringed Plover from the roost.

Sanderling feeding on the receding tide.

Other stuff on the beach and in the bay this evening :- 1 Fulmar(w), 4 Med Gulls(w), 40 Kittiwake(w), 1 Bar-tailed Godwit, 31 Knot, 600+ Oystercatcher and 5 Turnstone

Can't see it being long before you see Curlew Sand or Little Stint there, or hopefully something even better!
