River Yarrow, Eccleston.

A Mink was seen on the River which explains why I haven't seen any Moorhens on recent visits, only adult mallards (28) no Ducklings and a female Goosander again no young seen. An Oystercatcher flew over calling, only 1 Swallow seen and the usual warblers heard.

Hobbies Eccleston

Sat in my back garden enjoying the afternoon sun when 2 Hobbies drifted over heading in an easterly direction, glad I had my binos to hand, probably a pair as one was slightly larger than the other. My first sighting of Hobby this year.
