Lancs: 25th-27th April 2010.

27th April: Very disappointing views of the male Dotterel on Abbeystead Lane this afternoon!

This Snipe on roadside fenceposts was much more obliging.

And it was worth the trip just to view some of the stunning northern Golden Plover present.

Below: A couple of selected Moths from 6w actinic Heath Trap left overnight at Brockholes Nature Reserve LWT on 26th April:

Above: Water Carpet - appears to be a first for the Brockholes 10km square according to Mapmate.

Below: Purple Thorn - a beauty!

Above: A fraction of the 265 Whimbrel into roost on 25th April 2010.
