Cuckoo calling loudly
A pair of Pied Flycatcher using a nest box
Two Spotted Flycatchers
A pair of Common Sandpiper
Plus the usual birds
5 mini buses and a 50 seat coach disgorged a horde of students and teachers, anything nesting in the stream stood little chance of surving.

Same yesterday Andrew, and probably a weekly event, needs to be reported, addressed, and stopped during the breeding season. This invasion by so many bodies covers large lengths of the Marshaw Wyre.

Quite a few of the local secondary schools use the Wyre to do their environmental science/geography gcses and A levels. They are probably measuring water flow rates and will be measuring the dimension and depth of the river and using dye to assess speed. Very much a summer term activity.

So you need to undertake breeding season visits and map the territories of each species using the waterway and immediate area. Then you have the evidence and are maybe in a position to suggest a section to the particular school where there is less of a problem.
