Lesser Whitethroat.

Singing ( Rattling ) in the same area as last year along the bypass. Common Whitethroat also displaying in the area. My first Speckled Wood of the year along the path to the bench where the grass is quite long, hopefully it will stay like that for a while.

Strumble Head 20th April.

Not a seawatch but a stroll around the old Coastguards area. Highlight was at least 37 Wheatear in the tilled field just past Tresinwen with a couple of White Wagtails as well. A Whimbrel on the rocks near Mackeral Rock & as with last times visit hundreds of hirundines mostly Swallows with a few Sand & House Martin. In the flat calm a large number of Porpoises showing stretching from West of the Lighthouse East towards Pen Anglas.
