Curlew – WeBS 2021-22

Numenius arquata – GYLFINIR – Breeding resident, winter visitor and passage migrant.

Updates to the Wetland Bird Survey counts for this season.

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.

This graph will be updated as more counts come in.

Note that the maxima chart includes counts from June and July which, in recent years, have often been higher than the September-March counts.
