Troglodytes troglodytes – DRYW – Breeding resident
Troglodytes troglodytes – DRYW – Breeding resident The wren is a pretty ubiquitous species across Pembrokeshire, it having been recorded in almost every tetrad in the 2003-07 atlas. More than that, the BTO Atlas 2007-11 shows that Pembrokeshire is one of the most densely populated areas of the UK as far as wrens are concerned. […]

Troglodytes troglodytes – DRYW – Breeding resident The BTO winter atlas showed that Wrens were present in the majority of 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84. The darker the colour, the higher the relative total count for each 10km square. The darkest blue represents over 25 birds seen in a day More about […]
