Parallel lanes...

Two visits today produced the following:
An impressive 10 common sandpiper were on the Lune at Marsh Point.
1 green & 1 common sandpiper, 2 little ringed plover and the female shoveler were on the Wildfowlers' Pools.
Common buzzard, kestrel and sparrowhawk were seen.
c. 210 greylag on Aldcliffe - a sudden and noticeable increase!

Very little in the way of odanata around with just 2 brown hawker and 1 common darter seen - did the hobby eat all the emperors?!

And finally... a bit of bureaucratic oddness (manners prevents me saying bollocks, oops...) - it seems that having finally realised that the lower part of the road from Aldcliffe village to the parking area was known as Railway Crossing Lane, and erecting a lovely road sign saying just that, someone at County Hall has now decided that it should be Aldcliffe Hall Lane (which I thought historically referred only to the first section of the road ie up to Aldcliffe Hall, as was)... Anyhoo, the sign has now been changed (at what cost?) to declare that it is indeed Aldcliffe Hall Lane.
Looks like I'd better change my map.. again!
