Raving on........

Had a visit to the patch this aft, started off on a lively note with Ravens on the pylons making quite a racket and a peregrine screeching about the place. There was 1 Wheatear, Mistle Thrush and a Pied Wagtail on the field at the stables. There was a couple of Song Thrush on the track, plenty of Greenfinch and Goldfinch with a few Blackcaps adding to the birdsong. On the Wildfowlers’ there was a pair of Gadwall and the usual Coot, Moorhen, Mallard and 2 Shelduck. There are a number of Lapwings on the stubble fields. Freeman’s Pool had Tufted Ducks, Oystercatcher, Shelduck and 2 Little Ringed Plovers on the island. Singing in the woods were Blackcap, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler.

Are the ravens nesting on the pylons over the Lune, Steve - they dont seem to be on the telecom tower or nearby pylons nearer Heysham? Thanks.

Hi Pete,
Ravens are in the corner pylon opposite sewage works.
