|Polypodium Cambricum (Southern Polypody) on Lancelot - Please click over the photos to enlarge|
Meadow Pipits have been collecting with two parties noticed, one party of 30 plus in Dalton Crags and a further party of 20 or more on the Common itself. Also one or two pairs making their way across HR.
Without doubt odd individual Swallows and a party of three were making their way South on migration, you can usually tell them out from the local feeding birds, by their direct Southern flight and you see them in and see them out. A couple of days ago I noticed also odd individuals crossing over Booths at Carnforth following their ancient flightpaths crossing over in the direction towards perhaps the Trough of Bowland and then out South. I suppose it will now be a gradual build up until we get the peak movement South which will be on or around the 24th September.
Maybe up to thirty Mistle Thrush collecting in the lower Dalton Crags, making the most of the Rowan berries.
