People are strange............

Aldcliffe is not a rubbish dump.......

Freeman’s Pool was quiet apart from a Gadwall, Tufted Duck and Shelduck, a couple of Little Grebe and usual Coot and Moorhen. On the maize fields there is still a dozen or so Lapwing and a post breeding flock of 25 was seen on the river along with 6 Eiders on the far bank. The Wildfowlers’ Pools had a Shelduck and Little Ringed Plover. On the track were plenty of fledged Chaffinch, Tits and Greenfinches. Numerous Whitethroats, both species, and a Sedge Warbler were also present. On the marsh were a few Oystercatchers and 2 Skylark. Throughout the patch were Swallow, House Martins and Swifts. I have not noticed the Kestrel pair this year, I maybe wrong but it’s probably due to the demolition of the old building at Keyline, which, for a short while, was also home for the Barn Owl.

Not what the fence is for!
