After a couple of dissapointing visits last week, a little 'excitement' came in
the form of 7 Shoveler on the lower reservoir. Shoveler are annual at Foulridge
with ones and twos the norm but this group of seven, represents the highest
group seen there, well, by me at least. Anywhere else and i would barely give a
Shoveler a second glance but this is East Lancashire!
Wader wise there were 8 Little-ringed Plover and a single Common Sandpiper
