Fishguard Harbour/Bay and Strumble Head today

A visit to Pebbly Beach and the Ravens are still in their nest. Four Chough were wheeling and calling before one pair went off west and the other east.A short heavy shower produced three or four wheatears.  A Common Sandpiper flew out of the sewage treatment plant whilst a Buzzard food passed what looked like a snake to its mate, not a bad hours birding!

 A visit to Strumble this evening saw us greeted by a singing cock Linnet and a couple of Swifts which preceded a steady movement of mainly swallows with a smattering of House and Sand Martins. Out to sea Manxies streamed by, along with odd odd Kittiwakes, Fulmars, Auks and Gannets. Six Whimbrel added a bit of variety...
