Lapland buntings, Martins Haven

Lapland buntings very much in evidence today. The first over the car park at Marloes Mere; at least 2 calling from the kale field, beside Trehill farm; more birds calling from the big field next door (opposite the brick shed). Biggest flock was a group of 10 in the grassy field beside NT car park, Martins Haven, they flew up and into the stubble field opposite side of the road. Many more Skylark today with mobile flocks up to 100. Otherwise 2 Merlin and 2 Snipe on the Deer Park. Quick look at the Gann: 6 Med gulls, 9 PB brent and Kingfisher.
