      I’ve regularly seen pre roost gatherings of up to 30-35 in Scale Hall, Morecambe and once just over 100 at Pine Lake NW corner.

              Not a surprise at all to find the black redstart still in the same area of Sandylands near the blue house about 11.05 this morning. Mostly using the gardens today. Don’t be put off by “no sign today” messages! It’s elusive and can easily go out of sight in the gardens or rocks but will surely remain all winter unless we get a spell of hard weather.

              Also rock pipit again in the same area
