Hale Duck Decoy 3rd July 2019

Thank you to the 10 recorders who met at Hale Duck Decoy on Merseyside for this Recording Day.

The fascinating history of the Hale Duck Decoy is documented HERE

We’d like to thank the landowners and Natural England for permission to survey the site and the Local Environmental Records Centre’s RECORD & Merseyside Biobank for the species records prior to our visit.

Recorders:  Dave Bentley, Philip Brighton, Stephen Fletcher, Gary Hedges, Tony Hunter, Casey McShane, Belinda Nixie, Julia Simons, Clive Washington, Rob Zloch.

A developing species list is given below with more to be added in the coming weeks and months as recorders identify their specimens.  This list includes records from Tony Hunter & Gary Hedges site visit on 23rd August 2018.  As well as providing us with a list, recorders are asked to formally submit their recorders via their usual channels (iRecord is recommended).
