North Pembrokeshire 11-1-22

 A trip around the north of the county with Paddy gave some great views. Started in Ty Rhyg for Lesser Redpoll then on to Coed Glynaeron where three Crossbills arrived. On to Newport Iron Bridge where 2 Common Sandpipers, Kingfisher and plenty of gulls including 2 Med gulls were being well watched. Cwm yr Eglwys gave Black throated diver and Red Kite whilst Fishguard Old Fort gave 3 Great Northern Divers and 1 Black Guillemot in the harbour and 2 Red Throated divers out in the bay. We finished up at Dowrog and with other birders watched a cracking feeding display put on by a Short-eared owl and 2 Barn owls, 1 Hen Harrier (ringtail) flew over and Kestrel, Merlin, Buzzard all put in an appearance.
