Pembrokeshire Birds: Castlemartin Corse

Significant today was the amazing variety of linnets, the brand-new chopping program at Gupton Ranch being well gotten by farmland birds. Around 400 got on the cords as I parked at Gupton with an additional 200 feeding in the straw plant as well as on dock seeds. These were spread by 2 1CY peregrines, ♂ as well as ♀, probably brother or sisters, that created mayhem yet really did not capture anything. A ♀ sparrowhawk was searching along the bridleway – with linnet groups below as well as along the Corse there might not have actually been much except 1000 linnets entirely.

A solitary wheatear on the dunes, 2 of the 1CY kestrels that have actually been about just recently were ditching around Starman’s Hall. A buzzard called near the pines, as well as 300m upstream of the conceal a far-off 1CY ♀ marsh harrier was quartering the reedbed (bad document shot listed below) – making 5 raptor types today.

There were great deals of corvids feeding in the Starman’s Hall location. I listened to chough, as well as lastly situated them – flying high over the Corse, different from the various other corvids, a group of 28. My autofocus rejected to acknowledge them, yet I counted them 3 times.

Water rail, moorhen, snipe, grey heron as well as 2 Cetti’s were seen or listened to in the reedbed.

And also lastly, 9 shadowed yellows in the lucerne plant by Starman’s Hall was an individual finest.
