Date: Monday 9th July2018
Weather: Fine Warm
Leader: Graham Thomas
Party Number: 20
The Preston Society met on an old section of Longmeanygate adjacent to Cocker Lane. It was a lovely summer's evening and the party of 20 set off along Hugh Lane then through Hugh House farm and along track to Farington Moss by the side of Leyland Moss.
Followed the tracks around the fields of growing crops which has always been the home of many bird species.
Several Corn Buntings were heard then seen perched on stalks or flying around.
Walked around in a square to return to track leading back to the farm then retraced steps back to the cars.
Some of the group retired to The Dunkirk Hall PH after a very satisfying evening bird watching.
