Houghton's Green Flash

I finally had a look around Houghton's Green Flash today after meaning to go there for years. If anyone else is going, I parked on the other side of the M6 on New Lane and then walked down Smithy Lane, across the bridge and along the public footpath to the Flash.

Little Ringed Plover 4-6
Common Sandpiper 2
Dunlin 2
Yellow wagtail 1
White Wagtail 1
Swallows and sandmartins about 15 of each
Wigeon 1
Tufted Ducks 5
Lots of linnets and and few meadow pipits

The Little Ringed Plovers were hard to count as there were a few kids walking around in front of me flushing them off, there were definitely 4 but probably 6.

I'll be back again now I know where to park! (Thanks Colin for the info)
