Brockholes quarry and Local quarry - 10th April 2010

On Saturday I went to brockholes quarry and met a few people on the number 1 pit viewing point. Bill Aspin reported 3 med gulls, so that’s a reason to go, even though I didn’t see them I did see two white wagtails. Also on the same pit I saw oystercatchers, little ringed plovers, carrion crows, black headed gulls, tufted duck, redshank, lapwing, skylark, shelduck, teal, cormorant, Canada geese and a few mute swans.

On the way back I called back in the quarry and saw 2 peregrines. On the water I spotted coot, moorhen, 2 little grebe and 6 mallard. Over the water I saw 2 jay and jackdaw. In the trees nearby I saw 2 chiffchaff, blue and great tit and heard a willow warbler.
