Hooded Crow – 1894

Corvus cornix – A winter visitor.

Has become rare in the county, and in the West of England generally, in the last thirty years. At the time Mr. Tracy published his notes, nearly fifty years ago, a few used to visit the coast in the autumn, but did not stay long. One was shot at Pembroke, in December, 1889, and sent to Jeffrys, at Haverfordwest, for preservation, and one frequented the cliffs at Tenby, in the winter of 1892; these are the only examples we have heard of in recent years.
