Bird's Rock - New Quay

Saturday afternoon, good visibility but the water was a little lumpy, perhaps a 3. On setting up the tripod I instantly had a small group of BND at about 500 metres; while watching them, another small group appeared, about 100 metres closer in and then another two groups popped up further forward. In total there were four discrete groups with at least two animals in each. They were all slowly heading in the same easterly direction towards New Quay. After five minutes or so they did the usual disappearing act.

It was also nice to see lots of Swallows and what I thought were a couple of Sand Martins.
