Nearly forgot!! Had a party of about 30 Meadow Pipits crossing over Tarn Lane, Burton In Kendal, on full migration and moving North, as late as 1925hrs yesterday evening.
Also had a spent Blackbird egg in the verge near the Canal Aquaduct last night.
Today: 1830hrs to 1930hrs went up to the Trig from Dalton Plain Quarry Car Park. Very windy, and no reports of the Shrike, I checked out most of its usual haunts. Will check again tomorrow.
