A bit of a Bore........

Thursday night, midnight, a tidal bore came right up to, and past Skerton Bridge, must have been a goodie. So, as it was a big tide the following day I got myself positioned at Marsh Point hoping for the same. Sadly it was not to be, there was a bore but only small and had petered out in no time.
Saturday, WeBS to Skerton Weir, Freeman’s Pool had a mixed gaggle of Canada and Greylag, new in were 6 Teal. There was about 12 Coot, one young, 2 Little Grebe. The Bullfinch are still in the trees. At Marsh Point were 82 LBB Gull, Herr Gull 55, BH Gull 16 and 8 GBB Gull, along with 225 Lapwing. A bit further up river I saw 5 Common Sandpiper.

Hi Steve - seeing your vid here has made me feel quite homesick! I'll be over for a visit in October, so I'll be making a pilgrimage to good old Aldcliffe - just in time for a ring ouzel?
