Re: Yarrow Reservoir / Belmont

2 snip were drumming last night at Belmont. Why not come along this week and listen to them, you can also rescue some toads at the same time 😁😁

Re: Toad patrol, Belmont -update

The next few nights are expected to be when the migration starts proper and unfortunately there are only 5 of us at the moment and we cant turn out every night, so we could really do with some help.
If anyone can spare a couple of hours between 8 and 10pm please do so, 5 of us can only do so much!!

Re: Swallows

A lone swallow was over the fields next to Eyes Lane, Bretherton on Sunday, flew from the river then carried on in the direction of Bretherton.

Re: Eyes Lane

hi John
was that you sat in the car next to the bridge, I came down the lane in the car and turned around there.
we also saw a barn owl about 6pm, but at the other side of the flood (possibly same bird?)

Re: Yarrow Valley CP

Nice photo but looks like a bank/field vole rather than water vole to me.

Re: Help with Hoverflies please

I went with the Britain's Hoverflies book as it is much easier to understand than the Falk and Stubbs book and is more than adequate for the beginner.
Also the UK hoverflies Facebook page is excellent as already said.
