    Hi Chris,

    Good records!

    The club is doing some work on land we deem ‘functionally linked’ to Morecambe Bay SPA– and for records for key species (most waders and wildfowl) we’re trying to map the usage to field level if possible.

    Are you able to pinpoint the sites you mention for Whooper Swans and Snipe respectively?

    https://gridreferencefinder.com/ is easy to use and we’d really welcome a 6 or 10 figure grid ref for each precise spot.

    Many thanks,
