Updates to the Wetland Bird Survey counts for this season.

Note that Little Grebes were counted only on freshwater sites before 1994-95

Data for June and July are collected by Jane Hodges during the annual surveillance of summer shelduck populations on the Cleddau Estuary complex. There are no counts in August. The September to March data is collected from sites across Pembrokeshire (including the Teifi Estuary) for the BTO Wetland Bird Survey.
