Pintail – 1949

Anas acuta acuta

Mathew records many killed on Goodwick moor, but only twenty-eight taken at Orielton in eight seasons 1877-85.  It is scarce but regular as a winter visitor, to Orielton (fifty present there 26 Nov 1936) and Milford Haven, as well as small sheets of water (a pair Rhoson Pool 15 Sept 1941) including the ponds on the islands were it remains until early April if undisturbed.
