Wednesday 26th Jan

Ashton Hall Lake - The 4 Little Egrets had already flown in to roost in the low bushes overhanging the lake by the time I arrived at the site at c.4.30 pm. Good 'scope views from the public footpath/cycletrack by Nansbuck Cottage. Two did not appear to be ringed, while vegetation was obscuring the legs of the other two. Interestingly one was beginning to develop mantle plumes.

Also 1 Tawny Owl heard calling and 1 Peregrine over the estuary.

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).
