The first recorded Twite in Pembrokeshire was at Haverfordwest in December 1925, followed by another at Skokholm on 8 April 1933 (Lockley et al. 1949).

Up to seven at a time have since been recorded at Caldey, Dale Airfield, Goodwick Moor, Martin’s Haven, Ramsey, St Davids, the Smalls, Skokholm, Skomer and Strumble Head, with an exceptional flock of 19 seen at the Gann on 28 December 1981 at the beginning of a cold spell. Although recorded in all months, the majority were between September and December.
