Local Birding 24th-25th September 2011

Two visits to Foulridge over the weekend and the best birds were
Med' Gull and Shoveler. It's been a very poor autumn with very few
waders passing through. The Wood Sandpiper in the spring seems
like an eternity ago.

A search for migrants at Sheddon Clough produced 2 Chiffchaff and
around 6 or so Goldcrests.
A little further afield at Widdop Reservoir 4 Wheatears showed well by the
dam wall, along with several Stonechats.

I should have gone to the coast......

  1. Cracking results Gary, especially when you consider hand-held with a converter. Very nice indeed.
