Corn Bunting – 1894

Emberiza miliaria

Resident, but local, and never seen far from the coast. Is, perhaps, more plentiful immediately around St. David’s than anywhere else in the county. We have never met with it more than five miles inland. Mr. James Tracy states that it is plentiful at Pembroke all the year round. Mr. Dix writes: “As I was driving over the mountains to Narberth last February, I counted five on one bush, and saw at least a dozen others.” Mr. E. W. H. Blagg tells us that he found the Corn Bunting very abundant in the neighbourhood of Tenby.
