Fishguard Harbour 13th March.

A quick look on Outer Breakwater was very successful, firstly a breeding plumage Black Guillemot from the top end of the port where the crane used to be then seven Purple Sandpipers on the breakwater. A nice Peregrine flew over just as we were leaving to round off a good hour.

Casualty on the tide line.

My best guess is Fieldfare, any offers?

Tale of two woodies and parrog waders.

Not just one but two Great Spotted  Woodpeckers visiting my garden/peanut feeders, both appear to be femeles.

A group of ten Bar Tailed Godwits and five Knot, mixing with the more usual Oystercatchers  on the tide-line at the Parrog (Goodwick Beach) yesterday evening.

Flag Poles 8/03/18

A bit late posting these but hey ho as they say. There were a number of waders feeding in amongst the exposed shoreline rocks including a dozen or so Knot, a couple of redshanks, the usual Turnstones/Oyster Catchers and this lovely Bar Tail Godwit.
