Len's Woodcock brought us to 100, as I had overlooked Blackcap on the 22nd. We still need Barn and Little Owl though!

White Coppice

Bit of a waste of time. The moorland edge was bird free. It might have been connected with the shooters across the Goit who had bagged about 12 Mallard. At least I hope they were all Mallard. Three Tufted Duck which had been on Smith's lodge had disappeared when I went back to the car. The only cons...

Anglezarke reservoir

A juvenile Mute Swan appeared out of the mist at the north end of the reservoir. There must be a good chance that it's the young bird which flew away from Yarrow Valley Park a few days ago. Other sightings:- Mandarin Duck min 12, Mallard 4, Tufted Duck 3, Goosander 1, BH Gull 120+, LBB Gull 4, GBB G...

Re: Croston/mawdesley moss .

Went onto the moss from Drinkhouse Lane, but the mist / fog was too dense to see much. A flock of 20+ Redwing was at the junction of Moss and Finney Lane, and a flock of c30 LBJ's was in the field opposite but it was too misty to id. I did however manage 3 ticks in the form of Collared Dove, Tree Sp...

Hic Bibi and fields

Large numbers of Fieldfare, Redwing and Starling on the fields were very flighty, but I couldn't see what might be disturbing them. At least 2 Pied Wagtail and 3 Meadow Pipit were also on the fields but the low sun didn't help viewing. Sightings:- Fieldfare, Redwing, Mistle Thrush, Blackbird, Starli...

Arley Nature Reserve

Green Sandpiper was the bonus bird this morning with good views as fed along the edge of the feeder stream. The reserve itself seemed dead with the water level rather low, but eventually I managed to make out a few bits and pieces! Sightings:- Mallard 2, Teal 3, Little Grebe, Grey Heron 3, Green San...
