Edging past 50 at pits

Pinkie still on view
Main Pit
Dodgy Snow Goose

Just a short blog about Salford Priors as the bad weather continued making birding very difficult and quite unrewarding. The Pink-foot was still staying close with Greylags at first light before heading north. The pair of Shelducks were seen together on main pit whilst the four Green Sandpipers were on Pophills as usual.

I've managed to just edge to 50 species in the recording area missing many obvious ones such as Mistle Thursh, Chaffinch, Treecreeper. I did however find a dodgy Snow Goose on the edge of the lake at Abbots Salford. 

On a positive note I managed to arrange a meeting with CEMEX and the RSPB about the sites restoration. We the increase of work at the site I'm keen to point out some of the remaining key areas that need protection.
