Shelduck 1949

SHELD-DUCK – Tadorna tadorna

Mathew mentions that “a pair or two nest on sandhills below Milford Haven” and says it has been seen on Goodwick Sands, and once captured at Orielton.  Breeds annually on sandy banks, Mullock Bridge, Angle, and on the upper reaches of the Cleddau; also a few pairs at Newport and Teifi estuary.
