I got no further than Conder Green and Glasson last Thursday, and haven't had the time for Birds2blog since. Not enough hours in a day, and too much other stuff to deal with....I can't go on like this, I'm like a fish out of water!
The 2 Common Sandpiper found on Conder Pool 6 October when the resident bird was seeing off the intruder, appear to have become friends, they were in the creeks and were feeding amiably a few metres apart, a Goosander was also noted. On Conder Pool, 15 Little Grebe, and the lone Pink-footed Goose was grazing along the rear terrace, but the single Wigeon of late had another for company, 40 Goldfinch were flighty, and a Comma butterfly with wings folded in the bushes, couldn't possibly have been happy in the weather conditions.
Notes from the Lune Estuary, an adult Mediterranean Gull, 180 Curlew, a solitary Knot and Bar-tailed Godwit, 2 Great-crested Grebe, and a Peregrine Falcon on Colloway Marsh.
Around Christ Church, singles of Goldcrest, Blue Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Robin, Goldfinch, and Blackbird.
No Nectar Points there then!
Spotted Redshank. Conder Green. Pete Woodruff.
The Spotted Redshank has as yet failed to return to Conder Green, last year it did so a month ago on 14 September when I photographed it with the Grey Heron.
