Pallas’s Sandgrouse – 1994

Syrrhaptes paradoxusIâr Diffeithwch PallasVagrant

Matthew (1984) noted one Pallas’s Sandgrouse shot at Haverfordwest on 8 February 1864, one shot in Pembrokeshire in the spring of 1870, and another shot at Ambleston on 28 May 1888.  This latter record was during a year when there was an invasion of Pallas’s Sandgrouse, and they were widespread in Britain.

Note – BBRC review considers the 1870 record no longer acceptable.
