Random thoughts...

In the past 2 weeks I've seen 3 dead polecats around the county, all over 10 miles apart from each other. I was wondering if anybody has noticed an increase in live sightings or signs of increased population.

Recent wildlife sightings include:
Young newts (possibly Great Crested) at the back of Broadhaven South.
Many toads.
6 Choughs at Freshwater West playing on the breeze.
Some very noisy Jays at Stackpole.
Still quite a few dragonflies around the county.
Little Grebes at Westfield Pill.

On a semi-related note, on my frequent walks around the Stackpole Estate, I've noticed a lot of the fishermen seem to be ignoring the designated fishing spots and are fishing from where they want, including on the 8 Arch Bridge and under it. I know for a fact they have been disturbing some of the birds and other wildlife and wondered if anyone has seen the same or even confronted them about it?

Anyway, attached are a few photos from around the county of random bits and bobs that may be of interest.
