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

Saturday, 2 April 2011

Lady of the Loch.


As usual 'other things' have taken over from my birding life again this weekend - unfortunately - but here's a Birds2blog gap filler that should interest. Its an up date on what is thought to be the oldest breeding female Osprey ever recorded in the UK. There is also a book which is featured on the same page which I'd bet is an excellent read, both of which you can catch up with HERE


Then if you really want to descend into the gloom of reality then you should find out why it's still legal to import ivory and Rhino horn into the UK. Not enjoyable reading....but this is the real world and some of it is HERE

I'D SOONER BE BIRDING....

But I won't until Monday and if the weather people have got it right I probably won't be birding then either.

I'm sure you'll get out Pete :-)

Well in the absence of you getting out I'll give you my shortlist from Birk Bank today whilst on a Stonechat hunt. Sadly no Chats to be be seen, but it definitely was spring like nonetheless. Great views of a Peregrine circling, a pair of Wheatears, many, many Meadow Pipits, Red Grouse extremely close (a couple of yards and unusually didn't fly away), one Brown Hare, two Kestrels, two Buzzards, two Curlew (what a spring/summer sound they make) not bad (for me) for a quick half hour stroll between work shifts.

And I agree with Warren!

I intend 'doing' Birk Bank/Clougha about mid-month and many more locations to follow soon after. Meanwhile, thanks for your records....much appreciated Richard.
