Hello, Jon C here.
After a getting reacquainted with the Stone Jetty yesterday, I had a stroll around Aldcliffe this afternoon. Old habits die hard. Having not seen the likes of little egret, mistle thrush, moorhen, pied wagtail, etc for 12 months, I rather enjoyed it.
Highlights included a green sandpiper and pair of Eurasian wigeon on the Wildfowlers' Pools, and 6 little grebe and a pair of gadwall on Freeman's Pools. A party of 6 barn swallows passed through.
Let the good times roll!
