2013 2013 2013 <div class="MsoNormal">Autumn really got going in Pembrokeshire today with an adult <b>Semipalmated Sandpiper</b> over at the Gann, two <b>Wryneck</b> and the tantalising possibility of two <b>Citrine Wagtail</b>. Although we missed out on anything so scarce, a good variety of birds reached our shores as well. Five <b>Common Scoter</b>, a <b>Sparrowhawk</b>, a <b>Water Rail</b>, a <b>Snipe</b>, two <b>Curlew</b>, three <b>Sand Martin</b>, 16 <b>Swallow</b>, two <b>Tree Pipit</b>, 43 <b><i>alba</i>wagtail</b> including five <b>White Wagtail</b>, 11 <b>Robin</b>, 28 <b>Wheatear</b>, five <b>Sedge Warbler</b>, four <b>Whitethroat</b>, four <b>Chiffchaff</b>, 19 <b>Willow Warbler</b>, two <b>Goldcrest</b>, ten <b>Spotted Flycatcher</b>, two <b>Pied Flycatcher</b> and four <b>Starling</b> were logged. The glassy sea was perfect for cetacean watching and a minimum of 12, although possibly as many as 30, <b>Common Dolphin</b> were watched energetically hunting for much of the afternoon. Whilst Rich spent much of the day in a meeting, Giselle, Becky, Laura and Teg finished the South Haven track drainage which looks fantastic and will make the landing a much drier (and safer) place in the future.<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/-KSh5y4htLro/UiZTr9_pHuI/AAAAAAAACM4/oJb8U1Hpb_A/s1600/Wood.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-KSh5y4htLro/UiZTr9_pHuI/AAAAAAAACM4/oJb8U1Hpb_A/s640/Wood.JPG" width="640" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;">Six spotted Flycatcher were between the Farm and the Well, three were at Crab Bay and one was at the Bluffs.
