Mossland specials

A quick trip over to Houghton Green Flash today with Mark Payne to see the Black-necked Grebe that had been present for a couple of days. Good views but always quite distant with the bonus of a Little -ringed Plover as well.

There were plenty of Wigeon around but not many other wildfowl and a nice pair of displaying Great-crested Grebes.

Next stop was the nearby moss lands where Mark hoped to pick up Grey Partridge for his Cheshire year list. We found a single bird wit hthe bonus of two Corn Buntings and numerous Yellwohammers & Skylarks.
