Wildfowlers’ Pool was sparse apart from Moorhen. On the marsh, far side, were a good couple of thousand Pink footed Geese. Freeman's Pool had Tufted Duck 2, Goldeneye 4, Wigeon 2, Swan 2, Gadwall 2 and increasing numbers of Coot 15.Steve

The Aldcliffe cycle.........
Friday. Ventured down the parish hoping for buntings and larks, alas not on my watch, but not all gloomy as I saw 3 Rock Pipits and a flock of 20 Linnet near the sewage works. A Peregrine appeared to be dozing on the pylon, must have had its fill. A Red breasted Merganser was on the river. A good 2500 Lapwing on the mud along with Golden Plover and Curlew mixed in.
