    Coastal waders are no longer unusual on Crosshill Park (Torrisholme CC, Westgate CC, the Vale of Lune or Bare CC aligning Barley Cop Lane and Powderhouse Lane. The most common visitors are Oystercatchers, up to 40 or 50 on occasions. Redshank and sometimes Godwits are also visitors depending upon soil moisture. The wetter the better, associated with a high tide. This was not the case 20 years ago. There is a more than ample earthworm population for them to exploit. In addition, there are always 3 or 4 regular trampling gulls, dancing for their supper.
