Local birding: Brockholes Quarry - 28th March 2008.

Migrant grounding weather of SW wind with rain deposited a Scandinavian Rock Pipit, the only decent bird new-in of note during a very wet morning visit. 2 LRP, 18 Shoveler, 2 Teal, 60+ Sand Martin noted. Black-headed Gull numbers were very low in contrast to recent days. Gadwall numbers have done the usual March-plummet with only two birds seen.
