Hi Jon
The suppressed mid 1970s WWBT was definitely ranging upstream from Stodday and I seem to recall an old Shag record

Ill check

HNY

Cheers Pete!
I did try and 'scope the 2003 Conder WWBT from Aldcliffe in a desperate attempt to get it on the patch list (iffy, I know!) but I couldn't quite get it...
HNY to you too!
Jon

Two further suggestions have come in: my brother Dave reckons a fly-through alpine swift could well be on the cards while Aldcliffe regular Dan hopes we might discover a green-winged teal... both strong possibilities!

Just sorting the Heysham records for last year. The White Stork should have been visible from your air space!

yeah, thanks for rubbing that in Pete :-)
