Raptors

Birds of Prey in Pembrokeshire

The word raptor comes from a Latin word, rapere, meaning “to seize, snatch, tear away; to plunder a place”. It is a general term used to cover all birds of prey.

The wild open skies and the unspoilt lands below provide an ideal habitat for birds of prey and it is a common sight to see them soaring and swooping above us. On any road trip along the lanes and byways of our county you will spot buzzards on the telegraph poles and gateposts and, away from the roads, kestrel can often be spotted along fields and woodland edges. Yet more spectacular and awe-inspiring is to spot a red kite high above you and to marvel at its grace and beauty.
