Around the patches

Generally pretty quiet around the patches at the moment, the best I could muster was the following.

Houghton Green Flash: Two male yellow wagtails.

Pennington Flash: Drake garganey from Ramsdale hide where there was also a Cetti's warbler singing and a pair of lapwings with 4 chicks. About four common terns over the flash and a couple of hundred swifts, but low numbers of hirundines. Two shelduck were on the mud at the western end. Presumably the garganey is the bird which was at Lightshaw, because,

Lightshaw Hall Flash: no sign of drake garganey but a pair of shelduck still with 3 chicks, oystercatcher and cormorant.

 Garganey Pennington Flash.
