and the first Dunlin of the autumn was sat with a few Little-ringed Plovers and
a Common Sand'. A lone Wigeon was with the Mallard and Tufted Ducks and
On the Lower Res' a juvenile Little Grebe fed by the waters edge. Suprisingly,
these birds are quite scarce at Foulridge.
Later in the evening we drove to a well known Nightjar site in Yorkshire. Although
we didn't see the birds, a brief snatch of churring was heard at 21.55.
Another visit to Foulridge the following day and a very quiet afternoon.
Only a week to go, then it's a tour of Europe in the campervan........ at last
i'll see some birds!!
