Rivington & Belmont Reservoir etc.

Post by Leonard Poxon » Sat Nov 09, 2019 2:35 pm

Georges Lane/Belmont Road Rivington - 1 Raven, 3 Carrion Crow, 1 Robin, 2 Meadow Pipit, flock of 12 Goldfinch over, Stonechat heard. Possible Snow Bunting - I saw a bird on the north side of the lane just after the GMC boundary (on the Lancs side) move from the corner of my eye, but could not see it again despite standing there for 20mins. I did heard a typical Snow Bunting flight song - an occasionally repeated 'Tew' call note but could not see it. So anyone in that area listen/look out!

Belmont Reservoir - 112 Mallard (but no Teal seen), Pied Wagtail heard, 1 BH Gull over, Woodpigeon, 1 Blackbird, 8 Pheasant in the small wood next to the bus turnaround area.

2 Fieldfare in roadside hedges between Dean Wood and Alance Bridge.

Anglezarke Reservoir - 6 Tufted Duck, 1 Great Crested Grebe & 3 Mallard.
