could well have been one of our birds Geoff the adult males are now leaving the females to it, now that the chicks have reached a certain size.An Avocet was nice to see feeding along the shore of the north pit this morning. Two flocks of waders flew through comprising of 20 Ringed Plover and 4 Dunlin, 4 Dunlin were on Fishers Mill Pool.
A Barn Owl was reported hunting over the play meadow at 04:30am and a brood of Gadwall were noted by the north pit.
Look forward to seeing you............Geoff, the next time i am up there!
Just a small point but it is very confusing having three different Middleton Lake threads, especially as interest in this site will only grow and grow (although I appreciate the complications of the County boundaries).
Would it be possible to merge all posts into one thread and place somewhere appropriate? The mods may permit the amendment of the County title to say "Staffordshire (including Middleton Lakes)" or similar?
I agree with you in that there should be just one thread on Middleton Lakes (It was on about 6 counties at one time! all started by John Harris but most were deleted by the moderator) The West Midland thread seems to be the one most used and viewed so I continue to use it. It is of course up to others which one they use in the future or perhaps the moderators could amalgamate the three as you say.
Anyway, I hope one will evolve to become as well used as the excellent Upton Warren thread.
