Kentish Plover – 1994

Charadrius alexandrinusCwtiad Caintvagrant

The Kentish Plover is declining in north and west France and Belguim, mainly due to human disturbance at the coast (Cramp et al 1983).  It is therefore not surprising that the only Pembrokeshire records, singles at Skokholm on 28 May 1967 (C.Britton) and Dale on 15 May 1977 (M.Thomas) are not recent.
