Hooded Crow, probably the one seen at Birkbank a few weeks ago, in a field with other corvids at Quernmore today. It may have been displaced by snow cover from a more obscure area, hence no interim reports. A singleton at 1310 and then 6 at c1500 Waxwing at Carnforth Booths today. Purple Sandpiper Stone Jetty area. 3 Scaup off north Morecambe/Bare seafront at high tide.
