Leader: John Finnan/Graham Thomas
Party Number: 15
The Preston Society met on Park Lane just down from the Chapel and parked in a rough layby just above Ashcrofts Farm. It was a lovely summer's evening and the party of 15 set of but took the road towards Mere Brow then turned left onto The Marshes Lane. After half a mile turned left up track that eventually came to Ashcrofts Farm from the rear. No Owls were seen but we heard then found 2 Corn Buntings singing.
Passed through farmyard and soon came to the cars.
Some of the group retired to The Cock and Bottle PH Tarleton after a very satisfying evening's bird watching.
Three miles in just over two hours.
