St Davids Head

A pleasant way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Wandering up to St Davids Head. We managed to see a pair of Peregrin Falcons which have been nesting up on Carn Llidi since 2015 to our knowledge (may have been before, but we weren’t in residence then). We saw Wild Horses on the headland, near to Coetan Arthur burial chamber which is said to date back to 4000BC . A pod of porpoises in the current off the end of the head. About 12 sets of Choughs nest on the cliffs at this point and are quite a common sight up on the head, we managed to see about 5-6 of them this afternoon.  Amongst other wildlife, were lizards (some type of gecko-like creature), lots of butterflies, big fat bumble bees, kestrels and skylarks.

There are still remnants of the Iron Age community that once called it home with a fort and remains of huts. We didn’t realise what it was until we read about it in the local ‘Coast to Coast’ newspaper which is available free from lots of outlets including our information cabin on site. What a wonderful place to have as an office…..
