Red-breasted Merganser at Rishton Reservoir

Last weekend there was a splendid influx (albeit brief) of wildfowl into the East Lancashire region. Part of that influx was this Red-breasted Merganser that thankfully hung around for me to see it this weekend as I was away!


A couple of Mute Swans have been regular on the reservoir recently whilst four juveniles have been seen on the canal.

At least the weather's been splendid for getting out and about if not for driving birds over to us from the continent. So, from last weekends visit to the Lakes and yesterday in the Ribble Valley......
