Sign of the times
Two pairs of little ringed plover this evening, one pair on the island at Freeman's Pools and another at The Flood where there was also a male white wagtail.
A single long-eared owl was visible at the roost but none were hunting around the pools (that I saw anyway...) up to when I left around 7.30pm.
6 gadwall on the Pools plus tufted duck pair on Darter Pool.
3 pairs little grebe in the Aldcliffe area.
Otherwise, a couple of swallows but hardly anything else of note.
The new signs went up today as the picture above shows. Great news that Lancashire Wildlife Trust have finally agreed to a management deal at this brilliant site.
Thanks to all involved!
