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.

As the sunshine returned, the crowds poured into Haverfordwest Showground for the third and final day of the 2017 Pembrokeshire County Show. Getting around was no problem in stout shoes or wellies and the main paths were clear, but the arenas had become waterlogged overnight and this, unfortunately, meant that the Grand Parades of livestock could not go ahead and the motorbike display team’s show was cancelled, too.

Oh yes! Pembrokeshire County Show is a dog-friendly day out.

On the first day of the 2017 show the sun came out after some torrential rain the day before – a few issues for parking with parts under water and some muddy patches, but otherwise all set for a grand day out. Dogs on leads with responsible owners equipped with pooh bags are made very welcome. We decided to take our 2-year-old Border Collie, Cwtch, to see how she got on!
