Crow Patrol

A downright chilly late afternoon visit yielded two green sandpipers and two little ringed plovers at the Wildfowler's Pools. Three youngish lapwing chicks there also.

A noisy party of five ravens visited Aldcliffe Marsh, to the great displeasure of oystercatchers and carrion crows.

Out on the windswept estuary the shelducklings seemed to have lost a sibling, a stock dove flew in to drink, and four adult eiders drifted up on the rising tide.
