26th September 2013

Weather: Easterly -2/3, slight haze, cool, warming later

Visible migration continued today with at least 150 Meadow Pipit in off the sea, moving south inland as did a single flock of 35 Skylark.  Grey Wagtail (2), Pied Wagtail (4) and Reed Bunting (4) were all seen to come ‘in off’ and move South. Also recorded were; Swallow (3), Blackcap (2), Chiffchaff (2), and a Spotted Flycatcher spent all afternoon catching flies from the Elder west of Lingham Bridge. A single Wheatear was in the Horse Paddocks and was probably one of two remaining from yesterday. 

The resident Greenshank was at the 'head of the flood' at Dovepoint Road, Meols this evening.

A skein of 120+ Pink footed Geese came in during the afternoon and continued overhead south, giving their constant contact call as they went – A fantastic sight.
