Haven't birded at Doffcocker for years. Cycled over from Darwen circa 1975 for the Ferruginous Duck with a mate of mine from Blackburn. It was a good tick that.

Despite being drowned 3 times in the thunder storms this afternoon there was some busy tern activity. Birds were busy fishing and flying about. I counted 8 adults and one newly fledged juvenile. (ringed) Birds still seem to be raising young on both rafts.

The pair that raised the eldest of the grebe chicks appear to be nesting again.

Also present were 12 tufted ducks mainly males in eclipse plumage.

No sign of any waders or warblers singing but then I wouldnt be singing in that rain either!

Waders present on that mud is often disappointing though there are often good numbers of snipe through the winter.

I've only really started watching Doffcocker regularly this year and have been hoping for a decent wader on the bit of mud. Well pleased.
