Collared Pratincole at National Wetlands Centre

Jeff and I travelled to Llanelli, early evening on Wednesday 15 June to view the Collared Pratincole. Tim got it the day before, and Dan managed to see it on Thursday after a sprint from Cardiff to get there before closing time. The British Steel had about 7-8 birders inside and we were lucky enough to have Peter and Simon Murray on hand to get us on the bird right away. It was distant but we had decent views in what was a windy and overcast evening. Digiscoping proved difficult in the conditions. Other birds on site, included two European Spoonbills, the presumed escaped African Spoonbill and a Greenshank.
