Dale Airfield & Marloes

A quick search of the gorse around the airfield failed to give up another Pembs shrike but a good selection of commoner birds were present. 4 singing skylarks a wheatear and 3 whitethroats the highlights. More Linnets and Rooks than you could shake a stick at and many Herring, LBB Gulls and corvids playing leapfrog behind a tractor ploughing the stony field. Later, at Marloes Mere just after 8pm, an adult male Marsh Harrier explored the mere for a minute or so before drifting across the fields towards Dale/The Gann.
