on the way to pembrokeshire........
an overcast, crap weather day, not perfect for red kite watches anyway, this year was terrible for raptors,
i have proved that my thery is correct and that Buzzard numbers are down, even with the bad weather, in the entire 160 mile journey an amazingly low number of only 9 were seen, 9 Buzzard, that is truily terrible, saying that though the weather didnt help either
only 1 kestrel was noted, but 2 very nice male YELLOWHAMMER were noted signing from overhead wires,
12 RED KITE were counted, but all were quite far away, this included a single flock of 6 kites hunting over a hill on the outskirts of the brecon beacons,
a PEREGRINE flew over, as did a sparrowhawk,
but the main highlight was a LITTLE EGRET which was seen feeding in a river as we crossed over a bridge in some random town/city thing???????
a trip into tenby town added a single fulmar to the year list,
Next my favorite pembrokeshire patch
