Tree Sparrow: Another visit back up to Lancashire where we started at Martin Mere hoping to catch a glimpse of a Barn Owl or a Marsh Harrier, although lady luck was not on my side as all I got was some Reed Bunting, Sedge, Reed Warbler and Oystercatcher along the reed bed walk.

Common Darter Dragonfly: The one thing that was very interesting was the abundance and variety of Damselflies and Dragonflies, it was great just sitting and watching them dart and skim across the water and over the reeds.
Common Tern: The surprise bird of the day was a single Common Tern sitting far out on a pontoon on the main lake at Mere Sands Wood Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve, It hung about in the sun for about 15 minutes before flying off over the tree line. Other birds included one female Tree Sparrow at the feeding station and a very distant and fast Kingfisher.
