Mathew records one shot near Pembroke, two taken at Orielton decoy, and one probably from Stackpole now in the British Museum; all without dates.

At Orielton Decoy fifteen were taken up to 1908, and several were shot there between 1914-18.  A male was taken at Orielton in 1914 and another at the end of Nov 1938.
