      Torrisholme Cricket Club has its regular winter visitors. A dozn oystercatchers, crows, mistle thrushes etc. Always a pair of herring gulls which spend the day stamping and dancing for worms and a single common gull that does the same. Feeder not up yet but all the usual passerines are about and you can hear them.

      Trip to Pilling today on business. Numerous little egret visible between Cockerham and Pilling. Also many hundreds if not thousands of lapwing feeding on what looks like newly sown ryegrass subsequently sprayed with slurry on the fields either side of the road. Perhaps 2 or 3 birds per sq metre over a huge area. Not many geese but a marsh harrier disturbing everything at Pilling Lane Ends, quartering the area. Disappeared N and W.

      Tawny owl woke us up last night from the back garden in Freehold, Who-whooing at 2.30am …. presumably a male attempting to establish a territory. This could go on for a few weeks from experience.
