Re: Alder Leaf Beetles with Friend

David, your trees should survive the defoliation. They should be fine next year.

Re: Croston Finney\Moss

Neville, Clouded Yellows are rare migrants, less than annual in the CDNHS area, and then only one or two except for the occasional irruption year, which are few and far between.

Re: Common Bank Lodge - interesting woodpecker...

Lesser Spotted Woodpecker was reported by an experienced birder along the river in Yarrow Meadows (Dob Brow Pastures) 3 or 4 years ago, so it's quite possible.

Re: YVP 9-10am

Apparently one of the cygnets was sick and was removed to a swan sanctuary the morning you were there, Lydia. Seems to have been done by a member of the public rather than the rangers.

Needless to say there was no sign on Bretherton Eyes this afternoon! However, a Greenshank and 5 Snipe were flushed by a group of walkers crossing the rough field as they crossed the bridge and walked alongside the ditch. So every cloud has a silver lining! Also seen were Goosander 3, Pheasant min 3...
