Brockholes Quarry - 8th June 2009

We decided to put an Hour in at Brockholes Quarry this evening as there wasn’t any rain about and it might be he only time we get down this week.
On the main pit we searched for the previously thought nesting Little Ringed Plover and found it in the same area but not looking like it was nesting and no sign of its potential mate. Also 1 Common Sandpiper though it didn’t hang around for long, 1 Redshank, 4 Curlew, 15 Oystercatcher, 20+ Lapwing, 2 Heron and the usual mix of Swallow, Swift and Sand Martin. A brief look on the main pool brought us a immature Greater Black Backed Gull amongst 8 Lesser Black Backed but nothing much else to report.
