Shelf Moor trailer park

       A total of 31 Snipe, this group of 12 very mobile whilst
     others were in the far horse field near the farm.







                                Around 200 Starling
                   A total of 278 Lapwing with possibly some stragglers

                                            Ghostly figure of a Heron
                                           off into the sunset.



                                   The overgrown and very wet footpath.
                                                Juncus field


A last light visit to the trailer park at 1515 hrs found it very lively with all the Lapwings settling down together in the left hand field so I was able to count them before the light went .
A good, but not record, count of Snipe with a group of 12 flying round before settling with a second group in the horse field near the farm. Also 3 were present in the juncus field.
The massive Starling flock moved on towards their roost Bradford way and a single Heron drifted over towards Ringby at sunset.
4 winter plumaged Reed Buntings were in the juncus field along with a Wren whilst at least 3 Golden Plover were near the stables.

278 Lapwing
31 Snipe
3 Golden Plover
4 Reed Bunting
3 BH gulls
1 Heron
1 Wren
+ usual corvids.

Please note that all these fields are private including the juncus field but the area can be viewed from the footpath between the juncus field and Tracys field.
