Weather: W/NW - 6-7, Squally showers
Following yesterdays Eiders at Hoylake, duck movement was very much the theme of the day . From Hoylake a single Teal flew west as did six fine drake Pintail and three Wigeon. At mid distance hundreds of Common Scoter were moving with the flood tide and a small flock of 15 birds also held a male VELVET SCOTER, a scarce Wirral bird.
Other birds offshore included Red throated Diver (5), Diver Spp (6), Great crested Grebe (3), Gannet (2), Bar tailed Godwit (12) and two Meadow Pipit came 'in off' over high tide.
