Little Bunting & other news

Shame no-one else connected with the Little Bunting.  Having consulted Jon Green we believe this is the 6th record for Pembrokeshire, following 2 on Skokholm (Nov '67 & Oct '01) and 3 on Skomer (May '99, May '01 & Oct '01). It is therefore our 1st for 15 years and the 1st on the mainland.

Other highlights today included 2 Greenland Wheatears & 5 White Wagtails at Martin's Haven, a Tufted Duck at Marloes Mere, and at the Gann 24 Brents (3 dark bellied), 7 Whimbrel, 3 Sandwich Tern, 22 Dunlin, 21 Ringed Plover, 2 White Wagtail, and a Skokholm (red-ringed) 2CY Great Black-backed Gull that we couldn't read (maybe W:081 from 27/3?).
