Eider. Pete Woodruff.
The Lune Estuary at Glasson Dock produced 15 Eider, another first for me as I don't ever recall seeing such a number of Eider on the River Lune here before. The only other birds of note were just 3 Black-tailed Godwit.
Wheatear Brian Rafferty
I found another Whitethroat at Cockersands, and also found 5 Wheatear and 16 Stock Dove - another excellent count - taking advantage of a recently turned field. Waders were pretty thin but a count of 24 Whimbrel was excellent.
Someone once said to me....
'There's more to life than birds/birding'....was obviously a nut case, and in fact ended up in a mental institution!!
