Dave Glanville

It is with much shock & sadness that I heard of the passing of Dave Glanville this weekend. I will remember his enthusiasm on his visits to Strumble in particular & as noted in the piece on Pembrokeshire Birds he was great company to have in the lookout next to you. Sincere condolences to his family & friends, he will be greatly missed.

Flagpoles 15.00 17th July.

Usual suspects ( Herring Gulls, Oystercatchers & a few Black Headed Gull ), Curlews up to 4 now & 2 slightly smaller more distant waders gave them selves up as Greenshanks uttering their " Tew.Tew,Tew " call as they flew off.

Song Thrush 17th July.

Nice to see a juv Song Thrush in garden today. Adults not seen recently but possibly a fairly closely bred individual. After observations made later in the afternoon it's possible that this bird is being fed by the adult male Blackbird that has been feeding his own fledglings recently.
