Some good birds there. I'm still getting Siskin at Claughton as well. None of your other red or amber-listers though apart from House Sparrow.

2 juv Blackbirds being fed in our garden Ap 20 - east side of Brookhouse

Siskin down from high of 15 ws/b March 5 & 12 to 5 last week
Single male Lesser Redpoll back after a fortnight's absence
2/3 Greenfinch through Jan/Feb but none since mid March
Goldfinch down from high of 9 mid Feb to 2/3 last week
LT Tits down from high of 13 in Jan to 2/3 last week

Pairs of House Sparrow, Nuthatch & GS Woodpecker around
Tawny Owls active around wood at east end of churchyard where their 3 juvs perched in the trees by the road making those extraordinary noises last year
Fingers crossed for Song Thrush which got to egg laying stage last year but had its nest destroyed. This year the male lost its partner at the start of Feb, but, after a lot of singing, now has another....

First Chiffchaff appearance was w/b 26/3 & Blackcap was w/b 16/4
Early bees around the last fortnight; no butterflies yet - &, with the cold snap that's apparently coming, the bats will probably stop flying at dusk

Good views of pairs of Dipper & Grey Wag on Bull Beck from either side of the bridge outside the Black Bull pub

Thanks go to Pete Crooks for today's header photo of Aldcliffe. If you have a suitable picture of a local birding spot, why not send it to the webmaster, at andymccafferty@gmail.com? I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
