Redshanks in Llangwm Pill

From Graham Brace: Redshanks have returned to Llangwm Pill after an absence of three
months…a week later than usual. According to my records over the last
10 years or so they normally arrive back on the 21st June, the longest
day, give or take a day either side. I have been monitoring the Pill
every day and on Thursday 28th June there was a group of 25 feeding in
the gullies at low tide. I expect that number to increase over the
coming days and weeks to the normal overwintering population which peaks
at around 50 birds.
