All was as expected at Freeman's Pools, though an adult little gull flying around off Marsh Point was a pleasing sight.
|Spot the bird...|
Out on the marsh the recently absent greylags were back en masse, with around 150 pink-footed geese keeping them company.
A pair of shoveler were still on the Wildfowlers' Pools but other than a little grebe and multiple coot and moorhen it was pretty quiet there.
Once again there was a jack snipe at Snipe Bog.
Six skylark passed over, in ones and a group of three, all heading south.
A little owl was at Admiralty Wood (pictured).
I came across a nice female stonechat while walking home from the RSPB office yesterday. It was by School Pond in the FAUNA nature reserve in Fairfield, Lancaster. Spring must be on its way!
