2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">A flyover, white-rumped, mid-sized wader giving a <i>teu </i>call as it went over this morning was all too brief and left us head scratching. When a <b>Lesser Yellowlegs</b> turned up at the Gann this afternoon (joining a <b>Semipalmated Sandpiper</b>) our hearts sank. Yet again we are left dreaming of a pond with water in it. But it was not all bad news. A <b>Turtle Dove</b> at the Farm was the first since the 17th of May 2006. Other migrants included a <b>Sparrowhawk</b>, a <b>Ringed Plover</b>, four <b>Bar-tailed Godwit</b>, two <b>Curlew</b>, a <b>Common Sandpiper</b>, a <b>Common Gull</b>, two <b>Tree Pipit</b>, 45 <b><i>alba</i> wagtail</b> including eight <b>White Wagtail</b>, nine <b>Robin</b>, 12 <b>Wheatear</b>, six <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, two <b>Reed Warbler</b>, a <b>Garden Warbler</b>, seven <b>Whitethroat</b>, seven <b>Chiffchaff</b>, five <b>Willow Warbler</b>, a <b>Goldcrest </b>and a <b>Pied Flycatcher</b> on the cliffs at Twinlet. A pod of at least 11 <b>Common Dolphin</b> including two calves spent an energetic afternoon feeding close in off the Lighthouse. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-rEMZEsD-8wI/UiemMIzNiYI/AAAAAAAACNI/KYOhQfWVMJs/s1600/IMG_5669.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="424" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-rEMZEsD-8wI/UiemMIzNiYI/AAAAAAAACNI/KYOhQfWVMJs/s640/IMG_5669.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">Turtle Doves in the UK have declined by 93% since the 1970s and are sadly now a rare bird in Wales.
