Quite a few birders near Rufford were hanging around for the SEO's having not been able to get into Mere Sands because it was full!
It's the field west of the railway line and east of the Douglas just North of where the railway crosses the river downstream of White Bridge at Rufford. So effectively Loch Meadow is a triangle made by the railway, river and the footpath which cuts north east from the river towards Croston Moss. I'm sure you will have walked this many times! The large field north of Loch Meadow is Great Close which then becomes Croston Finney at Great Hanging Bridge.
