Wet Woodland

Last Tuesday I was working in Bowland near Bashall Eaves and I had my lunch parked on a layby on the road that runs through some cracking wet woodland managed as a nature reserve by the Lancashire Widlife Trust called Moor Piece.

After I had finished my butties I had a walk along the road through the woodland and I thought "this looks good for Marsh Tit" and low and behold a Marsh Tit started calling. Wouldn't it be great if that worked all the time! Other birds I had were Siskin, several Coal Tits, Long-tailed Tit and Great Spotted Woodpecker. Not too bad for a ten minute stroll. In fact the Marsh Tit was a year tick.
