BIRDING THE LUNE ESTUARY, THE FOREST OF BOWLAND AND BEYOND.

Now the bad news....


The bad news for me is....I'll get no birding done today or probably tomorrow, nor will I get any blogging done today save this short piece. This evening we attend a much looked forward to concert in Liverpool....'Human League'....thats if the roads/weather allow us to get there, so fingers crossed as it doesn't look too bad at the moment.

Meanwhile....

Sparrowhawk. David Cookson

An excellent image of the Sparrowhawk....thanks David.

Brambling. Colin Bushell.

Another excellent image, this one of the Brambling which is a 'finch' sometimes known as the Cock 'o the North, seen by Colin at Hesketh Out Marsh yesterday.

The Brambling has curiously been trailing behind its Scandinavian relative the Waxwing - here in their thousands - for some strange reason, but looks like it has arrived in numbers now with 1,000 in Grange-over-Sands in Cumbria in the past few days and other records now beginning to filter through....Thanks for this Colin.

I'D SOONER BE BIRDING!
