Croston Moss

Drinkhouse / Carr Lane circular. Fairly quiet birdwise especially on the moss. Buzzards seen in two locations - 2 each time so might have included juveniles. 16 Lapwings were on a lettuce field and an Oystercatcher was heard but not seen. Still singing were Whitethroat 5, Yellowhammer 7 and Corn Bun...

Re: Reservoirs .

The water level of Anglezarke reservoir has plunged even further, so the northern section is virtually dry apart from the channel and a couple of pools, so fingers crossed for good wader migration! Today, there were just 2 Oystercatcher and a dozen Lapwing, plus Pied Wagtail, Moorhen and a mixture o...

Re: Reservoirs

The water level at Anglezarke is dropping rapidly, giving hope for some wader passage, although this morning there was just the regular pair of Oystercatcher. The gullery at Belmont is starting to empty as birds go onto the surrounding fields. Numbers of juveniles easily match those of adults, but i...

Re: Willow Tit

Thanks Pete.
Yes, I've heard of Ebird, but we are committed to Mapmate for Chorley Nats records which we mainly receive through the Forum. I occasionally use Birdtrack but really it is duplicating the Mapmate recording.

Re: Willow Tit

Welcome to the Forum, Peter.
Your Willow Tit record is important as it is in one of the tetrads we are surveying for the RSPB's Willow Tit survey. Can you let me have a precise location (by private message if you prefer)?
Regards, Neil.

No Quail this evening. However, nice to hear up to 10 Corn Bunting singing, but with just 2 each of Reed Bunting and Yellowhammer. Also seen was a single but agitated Oystercatcher and up to 20 Lapwing. Along Wood Lane there was a family party of 7 or 8 Swallow, 2 singing Chiffchaff, Blackcap and 2 ...

Reservoirs

Water levels in Lower and Upper Rivington have risen again - it's no wonder the grebes have no breeding success. Upper Rivington just held a couple of GC Grebe and 2 Grey Heron, plus a Pied Wagtail The moulting goose flock on Anglezarke Reservoir contained c90 Canada Geese, 25 Greylag Geese and a hy...
