It was still present at 13:00 when I left it hidden in the vegetation. Also Lapwing(18), Snipe(8) and Dunlin(1). The cows were heading towards the Saltmarsh as I left but a couple of days ago they stayed clear of the area generally favoured by the waders. It should stay at least the day. Also a Green Sand between Morfa ponds and the Kenfig River.

Please note the birds spook very easily from this area so approach with some care and give consideration to others that maybe on their way there.
