So I decided to stay local and head down the Gower on Friday with my old man. Absolutely freezing in the hide at Whiteford Point, with the Easterly wind whipping up the sea making it very choppy. Best we could manage were 3 Common Snipe and a few Brent Geese. Walking around the point though, and being sheltered by the wind, birding became a lot easier. It's usually the other way around here. There were 100's of Brents, Turnstones, Dunlins, Ringed Plovers, Sanderling, couple of GCG's, Eider and 3 Mergansers Also, walking past the National Trust cottage on the way back, in a small pool of water in the field was a Green Sandpiper. Neither of us had seen one here before
