      Some of the highlights from a cycle from Knott End to Lancaster this afternoon:

      Whimbrel seven at Cockers Dyke, two N of Fluke Hall Lane and 18 on the Ashton stretch of the Lune. (cSD454574).

      White Wagtail and four Wheatears Fluke Hall-ish at SD387500. Seven pairs of Lapwing in arable fields just to S of Lane c SD388498.

      Fluke Hall Wood held five singing Blackcaps, a singing Stock Dove and three male Song Thrushes

      Six Lapwings incubating in the molehill-strewn field at SD401492. Four incubating in the polythene-strewn field by Bamber’s Cottage / Farm (Moss Lane) at SD455544.

      An impressive 45 Shelduck interacting in the cereal field between Ashton & Conder Green at SD458565 (ASC 13 W). Also a pair of Oystercatchers nesting here, though no Lapwings (cf 2020)– a result of the field having being drained in the winter?
