SCAUP COURTESEY OF MIKE FOLEYReece wasn't with me this evening as he was recovering from Chorley Panthers 22 - 6 victory over Thatto Heath Crusaders. He didn't manage to score a try this week but made some good takles and runs even though he was recovering from 'man flu'.
Brockholes Wetland LWT - 11th October 2009
Managed an hour watching the main pit before dark after recieving a text fom Mike reporting what was about. As well as the usual Mallard, Coot, Moorhen, Grey Heron and Lapwing there were numerous Teal dotted around, Shoveler, c10 Gadwall, 2 Scaup, Tufted Duck, 1 Dunlin, Cormorant and an eclipse drake Garganey. Thanks to the guy who gave me the info on where the Garganey was, even though I frequent the place regularly I don't know half the people's names who bird there.
