Bird Watching at the Fishery-Pembrokeshire Coarse Fishery

Bird Watching at the Fishery

This is just a flavour of the many birds that live or visit Pembrokeshire each year. Hawks, Buzzards are plentiful and in recent years Red  
 
Kite have returned and it's also possible to see Sparrowhawks and Goshawks.
"I had the pleasure of following a Sparrow Hawk along a small narrow road situated just south/west of Pendine. I remained behind whilst it flew at no more than 18" above the ground. A check of my speedometer indicated that the Sparrow Hawk was travelling at 40 miles per hour. The ease of this wonderful bird in flight and at such speed is truly a wonderful sight."
 
This picture shows a Sparrow Hawk attacking some ground feed house sparrows.
We see this hawk on a regular basis, thankfully the feeding birds have plenty of covers to hide when he arrives.

Spring sees the arrival of the birds which only visit to breed. Swallows, house martins, warblers and many of the seabirds. If the conditions are favourable you can witness falls of migrants around the coastal cliffs and islands, with luck even Wrynecks and Ring Ouzels. 

A winter break will give you the opportunity to watch the wildfowl, waders and other water birds on the Teifi, Nevern, and Cleddua Rivers Great Northern Divers, Slavonian Grebes and little Egrets spring to mind. While Hen Harriers and Peregrines hunt accross the county large flocks of Lapwings and Golden Plovers will be seen passing overhead.
