Fine slight breeze
Monday 3rd June
A party of 28 met at The Plough PH (Jerries)at Runshaw before walking east to Tithe Barn Lane on the left. This had lots of birds on the lane including Dunnock and Song Thrush.
A gate on right gave views across to the rear of Runshaw Hall with a field full of birds including Lapwing and Stock Dove.
Continuing to corner of lane at Altcar Farm this now became Altcar Lane.
Followed this to the 17th century Snubsnape Farm. Turned left here then a path around large house. Followed track south and after picking our way through a herd of bullocks, we picked up path that eventually led to Bourne's Farm. A bonus here was a Lesser Whitethroat singing but quite a way off so not seen.
It was a lovely summers evening and a joy to be out.
Some of the party had a well deserved drink in The Plough after a bird filled evening.
