71 Curlews, 3 Ravens and 8 Linnets in maize stubble field at SD428790, near the Winster and Meathop Road. Improved fields in this area exceedingly poor for birds.
Quite quiet at Meathop Moss but a Crossbill, 3 singing Chiffchaffs and singing Blackcap and Treecreeper. Good views of the usual raptors.
Had a brief walk round the boardwalks at Foulshaw Moss and counted the following:
Lesser Redpoll 38
Reed Bunting 16
Tree Sparrow 15
Willow Warbler 4 in song
(good densities of singing Marsh Tits and Blackcaps round Witherslack / Hale Cat– but no Hawfinches seen/heard!)
47 Whooper Swans (mostly ads) on sandbank SD450790 just downstream of Kent Viaduct
LDBWS feeding station at Fairfield:
Linnet 45 including some on Alan’s tables for the first time. A few more days of feeding here.
Reed Bunting 22
Stock Dove 3
80 Black-headed Gulls following the plough.
