The only Pembrokeshire records are as follows: singles at the Gann from 2 to 10 October 1967 (K.J.S. Devonald, J.W. Donovan), at Nevern Estuary on 10 August 1984 (R. Dobbins) and at Dale airfield from 16 to 30 September 1984 (N.A. Lethaby, A. Silcocks et al.). This last bird spent much of its time in company with a group of five Buff-breasted Sandpipers, also transatlantic vagrants.
