A nice surprise today, a late, juvenile, Yellow Wagtail, 23 days since I saw my last one here.

Probably my latest ever, it dropped in with 28 Pied Wagtails, and stayed for over a hour.

33 returning Twite were nice to see again, 1 had leg jewellery, very faded blue or white over metal RL & red over white, Left Leg.

Also seen 2 Grey Wagtails, 29 Pied wagtails and a few Meadow pipit.

The Twite wearing the colour ring combination (Left: White over BTO , Right: Red over White) was ringed at Booth's Wood Reservoir, Rishton on 21/01/2017 as a first winter male. It was ringed there by Steve Christmas/Jamie Dunning as part of their on-going colour ringing project.

The ringers are very grateful for the sighting. I'm sure they will be pleased to hear of any sightings of other colour ringed Twite that might be seen this winter along the Lancashire coast.

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).
