site and visits to Foulridge and Coldwell reservoirs.
The first real signs of return wader passage this weekend with a juvenile Ringed
Plover, 60 Lapwing, a single Golden Plover, 6 Common Sandpiper, several
Little-ringed Plovers and 2 Oystercatcher at Foulridge over the weekend.
At Coldwell, two broods of Little-ringed Plover chicks with attendant adults
and Common Sandpiper young there too.
A nice bonus, was a group of three Common Crossbill which came down to
drink from the reservoir.
The Long-eared Owl chicks are doing well now and actively flying in and
out of the nesting wood, allowing for some excellent views!
