Strumble Head (07 Apr 13)

A walk out this morning down road to lighthouse then along coast to reed-bed at Pwll Arian and back.

Golden Plover seems to have moved on - no sign this morning.  My first singing Blackcap in Richard's Valley.  Lots and lots of Meadow Pipits moving and a notable movement overhead of Goldfinches!

A Swallow East along cliffs just past lighthouse.  A Willow Warbler and Lesser Redpoll feeding on the ground together at one of the small streams along the coast was a strange combination.  A couple of Mistle Thrushes seen.  A pair of Choughs were aggressively mocking something at the bottom of a gully but I could not get to see what it was - a bird of prey maybe?

21 wagtails in the ploughed field just before the head turned out to be 20 Pied and 1 White.
