Post by peter rowlands » Tue Dec 12, 2017 8:46 pm

Took a long time to find the very mobile Firecrest among the many mobile Goldcrests at Walton-le-Dale this morning. Brilliant little bird. Also seen. Dunnocks, Robins, Meadow Pipits, 2 Chiffchaffs, Blackbirds, Wrens. Fieldfare, Grey Wagtail, Lots of Pied Wagtails, Sparrowhawk, Wood Pigeons, Stock Doves. Corvids and several Goosanders on the River Darwen.
