Castlemartin Corse

At least one marsh harrier still present after the storm (well marked female) - alternately hunting over the reedbed and perching on bushes. Spectacular numbers of lapwing and golden plover at the upper end, swirling about presumably put up by a raptor - well over a thousand of each, didn't attempt to count them. Lots of skylark singing on the coastal fields, small parties of 50+ linnet roaming about, 4 chough. Pair of ravens and a buzzard around the pines.
