The Redstart was considered to be a sporadic breeder in Pembrokeshire prior to the 1984-88 survey. Fieldwork during that survey revealed a previously unsuspected population nesting around the lower parts of the Preseli Hills, plus a few scattered pairs elsewhere. They were similarly distributed during the 2003-07 atlas, but found in 33% more tetrads. It is estimated that about 200 pairs were involved.
