Black-winged Stilt – 1994


The first bird recorded, at Narberth on 24 July 1976, was discovered by the local postman. Single birds then occurred at West Dale and the Gann from 3 to 6 April 1987, at Penally from 19 to 30 March 1990 and at Skokholm from 7 to 8 May 1990; this latter bird spent most of its time dodging the aggressive attentions of breeding Lapwings.
