As a young lad I spend quite some time around Ford Green hall whilst overnights at my grans. Well with the rain not stopping & the kids like caged animals I took a walk around there. Very Little has changed in all those years perhaps not so many reeds as once was. The normal duck present the best of the bunch a few Pochard and a few Redpolls. Not the desired start to the years birding but Tuesday I have the day to myself & fancy heading into Lancs for a few reasonable long staying decent birds.
