Two year ticks for the area

Heysham obs
Another local Grey Wagtail seen today (thanks Janet) in the housing estate next to Heysham Moss.  Ringed on 14/9/14 at Middleton.

The way Pochard have been going down the pan in this area and the fact that it is very much an early year species suggested a possibility that we might miss out on it for the patchwork challenge. All change today with a male on the model boat pond

Cetti's calling behind dipping pond this morning and at least one water rail (two yesterday afternoon)

Pair of mute swans back on nesting pond - fence pond- at Middleton
