Brockholes Quarry 8th May 2009

Out on my own tonight, so no log book as Reece usually logs everything. My memory isn’t as good as it was (not that it ever was good!) but here goes.

As I arrived 2 Curlew headed south over the river and a mix of about 30 House Martin, Swallow and Sand Martin were feeding over the Ribble.

Swifts were back in number tonight with 150+ sighted along the road and over the main pit. The usual Tufted Duck, Mute Swan, Coot, Moorhen and Mallard were scattered across the main pit.

The Whimbrel numbers have dropped considerably since my visit on Wednesday with 8 leaving soon after I arrived and only a further 20 showing before I left at 9.
The Sanderling was still showing though on the main pit now plus 6 Dunlin and a Ringed Plover.
