Strumble Head

A walk around the headland from the Old Coastguards point to the Lighthouse found , firstly lots of people then a single Wheatear which was just about close enough to be photographed. A good flock of Hirundines mostly Swallows with a few Sand Martins numbered 50+, out to sea only a few Gannets , a single Fulmar & 2 of each Gillie & Razorbill. A few Porpoises were showing quite well & not very far out from the coastguards point , but still no Manxie.
The Mute Swan that Carole saw at the Flagpoles yesterday was not present today , that could be quite costly regarding my local year list , they're not common at all around the Fishguard area.
