    Hi Rosie, Pete’s WM field is FLL parcel BQ6. Marked as LDBWS FLL (functionally linked land) because of Whimbrel, Curlew, Lapwing and Oystercatcher etc. usage.

    There were also 24 Whimbrel and two Stonechat at BQ2 (Blea Tarn!) this evening– thanks I. Hartley.

    My map attached– surely other fields and parcels up there with similar interest so six-figure grid refs very useful. Thanks Pete.

    Same time, same places, similar numbers as previous years. Interesting. A farmer local to the Damas Gill Reservoir told me several years ago that the fields around the water are used as a roost whilst the birds are passing though and have been for many years.
