Marloes Mere & Sands (yesterday)

A nice female-type Merlin on a telegraph pole by the Marloes Sands car park yesterday.
And on the way down to the beach (the direct route, not the path via the old youth hostel) there is field on the right, just past the cottage, that is full of barley that has been left standing. This was full of finches and buntings, including at least one Brambling. As long as the field is not ploughed up too soon, I think it could be well worth a visit through the winter.
At least 16 Chough feeding in the fields nearby.
