Chough– as we prepare to leave lovely Pembrokeshire, here is the iconic species of these western cliffs (especially for Sian!). On the amber list due to reduction in grazed turf, and cow-pats, which provide insects to feed these unusual members of the crow family, we’ve been lucky to see a few individuals and pairs. With red legs, curved red bills and wonderful glossy black feathers, they are a brilliant sight. Conditions: long spells of rain
clearing to blue skies. Temperature: Max 12- min 7 c.
