Still 2 (possibly 3) green sandpipers at the Wildfowlers' Pools again today.

Little owl now regular in a spot nearby - they seem to becoming increasingly difficult to find in much of our recording area so this is a positive sign. They have been absent around Aldcliffe for the last couple of years having been pretty reliable since at least the late 80s.

Saw some impressive dragonfly predation by a house sparrow in the Fairfield Orchard. The bird grabbed an emperor and repeatedly bashed it to remove its wings (seen bee eaters do this often, but never sparrows!). Once the wings were off the sparrow removed the legs before flying off with its protein-packed prize.

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).
