A few highlights from a quick visit to the Lancashire Wildlife Trusts Meresands Wood reserve. Always well worth a visit despite attracting a lot of dog walkers. In addition to birds also very good for mammals with most of the more common bats, Foxes, Stoats and even Red Squirrels seen.
Dabchick or if you prefer a Little Grebe.
Great to see them doing really well at Meresands. More locally their numbers have decreased over the past few years likewise Moorhens and Coots. Possibly connected with the arrival of Mink.
