Evening Walk

Went out for an evening stroll with Lesley over to the Void, an area of the former Silverdale Colliery site, as it's only around the corner from where we live I pop across ever so often but never usually see anything of interest the odd Sky Lark a few Warblers in summer etc.

But the last couple of days there has been some Ring Ouzel here so with fingers crossed off we went.

Bumped into a couple of fellow birders and was soon watching a pair of Ring Ouzel, which over time watching turned into 4 Ring Ouzel! not bad for a urban site, even had a Green Woodpecker feeding in with them which made for a strange sight.

Willow Warbler

Ring Ouzel
Also seen were Willow Warbler, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Longtailed Tit, Little Ringed Plover and Lapwing.

Well worth it and beats staying in and watching the box.
