    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.
