Flagpoles 14.00 1st March

The seemingly wintering Greenshank roosting with a small amount of Black Headed Gulls on the far right hand side at the Flagpoles. The largest number of Turnstones I've seen for a while, well into double figures. Still a large number of Cormorants out in the harbour on the Flagpoles side quite close in to the Inner Breakwater.  

Mediterranean Gulls

In Fishguard Harbour this morning 2 adults (one with full hood) and a first winter Mediterranean Gull.

Strumble stuff,

Rich and Sean had an hour at Strumble today with a minimum estimate of 15 porpoises seen. Also of interest were a female Peregrine several Red Throated Divers and apparently "flocks of Meadow Pipits"

Fishguard Harbour 19th Feb.

Approximately 50 Cormorants in Harbour on Ferry Terminal side, quite difficult to count while feeding but fortunately all took flight for a short distance on one occasion. Noticeable lack of Divers though in the harbour.
