Calling all birds...........

Aldcliffe was a hard slog today, and I spoke to a few other birders who were also finding things quieter than expected. New in was a pair of Gadwall on Freeman’s Pool, along with Shoveler, Little Grebe, Tufted Duck, Shelduck, Coot, Mallard and Mute Swans. Chiffchaff’s singing in the woods. A few Goldfinches about looking very smart, and a Little Egret did a flyby. 
A Chiffchaff was seen at the railway crossing, along with Greenfinch.
Elsewhere, of note, were 1 Swallow, Meadow Pipit 5, Skylark 1 and a Green Sandpiper on the Wildfowlers’ Pool along with some Teal. A Kestrel was hunting by the pylons.

Seeing that its your name at the foot of this post I'm addressing you Steve not to worry about this comment above, though my enquiries on a similar blog problem indicate a 'spam' at work....a rather obvious statement perhaps but thought it may help.

Aways good to keep up to date on Birding Aldcliffe.
