Ford Moss 10th March
Another trip to Ford Moss for a bird survey, the weather sunny but cool and still breezy, there was a real feel of spring in the air,quite literally in the form of singing Skylarks as they rose higher and higher into the blue of the sky. Winter is still not finished as witnessed by a mixed flock of 36 Fieldfare and 18 Redwing. 3 Roe Deer bounded across the moor and in several puddles Frogs were gathered in small numbers surrounded by large clumps of Frogspawn. No warblers or real spring migrants yet but 25 species were seen on the day.
