Wednesday 18th September, 2013

Glovershaw
A quiet morning after two days of rain was enlivened by a Sparrowhawk which leapt from a fence-post and flew about three feet above the ground.  The bird plucked a Meadow Pipit from amongst a small feeding flock and it was immediately harassed by a Kestrel, which chased the predator to a tree by Golcar Farm.
Later at 10.25am - A flock of 30 Pink-footed Geese headed north west.
