Nice count glad we come up with same number of knot as they are awkward in mixed species gangs :-) Some of the Barwits must have gone over to the fylde they do

Ha - just realised what you mean seeing your Sept count ! They mix with the dunlins / barwits and knot making it tricky but probably undercounted Grey Plover slightly if anything.

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 I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
