#LancashireDay – Time To Celebrate Lancashires’s wildlife/environment/scenery
The now annual Lancashire Day is upon us, with the official day on Sunday 27th November
It is a time to celebrate all things Lancashire, our food, culture, environment & wildlife
One of the first events happens – a screening of “Before The Flood” the Leonardo diCaprio film – on Friday 25th November from 7pm-9pm Mystery Tea House, 23 Cannon Street, Preston P31 3NR (organisers suggest a donation of £2:50 entry)
“Before The Flood” was released recently via National Geographic & is a very clear film highlighting the big global environmental issues of our time – if you want to know what everyone is on about talking about climate change, then watch this film!
On Sunday 27th November there is a “Birding For Beginners” Course during the morning at Leighton Moss RSPB
Rare birds seen recently in Lancashire include Desert Wheatear & 4 Purple Sandpipers on Blackpool Beach, American Wigeon & Great White Egrets on the Southport Marshes & Leighton Moss RSPB, Cattle Egrets on Marshside RSPB, Siberian Chiffchaff at Brockholes, 3 Greater Scaup on Fairhaven Lake, North American Green-winged Teal at Martin Mere, with small numbers of Barnacle Geese amongst the huge flocks of Pink-footed Geese
