Lancashire Bird Report
Steve White has nearly finished his editing work and I've started to put the photo-sections of the 2009 Lancashire Bird Report together. The front cover will feature the Velvet Scoter that stayed a few days at Barrow Lodge towards the end of last year (and also featured in BB photograph of the year competition).
With a bit of luck and a following wind, we should get the report out to members of the Lancashire and Cheshire Fauna Society in early October.
Things are generally quiet on the bird front locally. Garden feeders are busy and Swallows and House Martins are busy feeding broods of chicks nearby. I keep scanning the flock of Black-headed Gulls that frequents the fields on the opposite side of the canal but still no Med's just yet.
