The herd of 29 Whooper Swans were still on the Wildfowlers' Pools at 2.00 pm.

2 Wheatear along the salt-marsh side of the sea wall on Aldcliffe Marsh (3 there during the morning according to a dog-walker).

Admiralty Wood is the group of mainly oak trees (its hardly a 'wood') to the SW of Pony Wood - i.e. between Aldcliffe village and the path connecting Aldcliffe Road and Willow Lane. I've used the name Admiralty Wood as this is what Jon Carter calls it on his map of the Aldcliffe area on his Aldcliffe blog.

The male Rose-ringed Parakeet was again in Admiralty Wood early this afternoon.
