Pembroke today

Went to Pembroke for the day to see a male Red-footed Falcon, alas it flew off before we arrived and wasn't seen again. So we [Sid and I] had a walk around the general area for a couple of hours. The sea provided year ticks in Manx Shearwater, Gannet, Fulmar, Kittiwake and Guillemot, While the coastal path had Raven at nest, 2 Chough and lots of Linnet, Whitethroat and Stonechat. At Goodwick harbour a lone Bar-tailed Godwit was a nice find and there was a large passage of Barn Swallow and House Martin going west. Also photo'd the hoverfly Cheilosia albitarsis amongst the commoner species. A May Bug (Common Cockchaffer) flew by.
