Never been to this part of the world before. Where is the best place to see chough please?
Any recommended sites for good birding within this area?

Thanks for your help

Visit Amroth just east of Saundesfoot,scan the sea ,there may still be good numbers of Scotor,Divers,Grebe,and sea ducks.Bosherston Pools is well worth a visit,The first Sand Martins will be in by then.Go on to the nearby cliffs for Chough,and early Wheatears.Eligug(gullimot)stack will give you good views of Gullimot and Razorbill.Choughs should be fairly easy to locate.

Thanks Allan

Stackpole estate nr Bosherston was excellent.Chough seen on the path to Saddle Point. A bittern in the reed bed on the Lily Ponds (central lake nr Broad Haven)
Sand Martins on the Lily ponds (eastern arm). Govan Head and Eligug Stack out of bounds because of gun fire.
Good sightings of Wheatear and Stone Chat on path to St Davids Head from Whitesands beach.
Thanks for your helpful advice
