In between revision
Not much birding done today because I have been revising for my exams that are starting in a few weeks time, however late afternoon my dad took my out for an hour to connect with the pair of Garganey (yeartick) that turned up at Mythop in the morning. A gorgeous pair of birds were only my 3rd and 4th for the Fylde with the previous 2 both being males, in 2007 and 2009. On the way back we stopped off at the mere in the hope that a Black Tern might drop in since there have been lots seen to the south of here, mainly on the East Lancs reservoirs and also Pennington Flash in Manchester. The mere was very quiet with Reed Warblers singing everywhere and a couple of Swallows over being the only things of note.
