Marloes Peninsula

Surprisingly mild once the wind had eased this evening with plenty of midges on the wing. Dozen Swallows and a single Sand martin by the barb wire gate, 12 pairs Teal, 6pr Shoveler plus 5m, and a pair of Wigeon. Single Chiffchaff and single Willow warbler. Female Merlin dashed through. 5 Chough in Trehills fields. 10 Wheatear on the coast path inc a pair at Renny Slip, male Kestrel same area. A Song thrush in Martins Haven and a Snipe on the Deer Park, don't usually see many of them here. 3 Blackbirds (2m) on the Deer Park and a Ring ouzel-like deep, dry tuk-tuk-tuk from the thick blackthorn behind the toilet block but not showing.
