Blackbirds and thrushes are not found, nor any species of parrot, but on the other hand, we have the hoopoe (yatsugashira), the red-breast (komadori), the bluebird (run), the wren (miso-sazai), the golden-crested wren (itadaki), the golden-eagle (inu-washi), the finch (hiwa), the longtailed rosefinch (benimashiko), the ouzelbrown (akahara), dusky (tsugumi) and water (kawa-garasu)the kingfisher (kawasems), the crake (kuina) and the tomtit (kara).
Apart from the Duddon, which forms part of the western boundary, the principal rivers are the Leven and Crake, flowing southward into a common estuary in Morecambe Bay.
If we are very fortunate, we may see coveys of Coqui Francolins or flush a migratory Corn Crake.
Others are spotted crake, Osprey, Bittern, and ferruginous duck.
The morning was, as expected, very productive and we saw some interesting things including an Australian crake and about 1000 Banded Stilts.
