Winter Hill

Post by John Frankland » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:01 am

Couldn’t decide east or west this morning but picked east by turning left out of the road !

And a good choice it was too heading to Winter Hill for 8am.

One of the first birds I saw on the Chorley side was a female/juvenile * Black Redstart on the main mast building. Seen again at the back of the building and showed well.

Also 3 Stonechat, 2f Wheatear, 2 Meadow Pipit, 2 Red Grouse, 1 Kestrel and 440 Pink footed geese over in a c40 SE and a c400 S.

* 1 more takes me to 142 species for the year.

Another skein of c100 Pink footed Geese over about 910am from George’s Lane was probably the same one as Len saw.

Also 3 Swallow near Abbey Village and 40 each of Teal and Mallard on Belmont Reservoir.
