Tarnbrook Fell

Todays ramble was to the Forest of Bowland where we walked from Marshaw to Ward Stone and back via Tarnbrook. There were lots of waders displaying today, curlews, lapwings and oystercatchers, and there were plenty of red grouse on the moors, but as might be expected, no hen harriers and no short-eared owls. Best of all though, we saw a dipper on one of the streams. Following yesterdays black-bellied dipper in Yorkshire, this means that I now just need Cinclus cinclus hibernicus to complete the set of British dippers this year.

Year 2015: 147 (Red grouse)
