      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
      Siskin 4
      Osprey 2
      Greylag 2

      (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
      Chaffinch 8
      Stock Dove 3

      80 Black-headed Gulls following the plough.
