07th November 2013

Weather: SW-2, Sunny and clear

Passerines on the move included 15 Goldcrest and 2 Fieldfare at the Lighthouse where a roving 'tit flock' could be found in the coastal sallows.  Gannet (62), Great crested Grebe (31) and Razorbill (1) were also recorded offshore from the Lighthouse. Further west at Hoylake at leastr 10 Red throated Diver , 2 Red breasted Merganser and 29 Common Scoter were offshore over the High Tide.

Wader interest included 11 Little Egret feeding in the tidal gutters west of the Lighouse and the wintering Greenshank remained at 'Greenshank Groyne' this evening. One little Egret ha colour rings. The origin of this bird is being researched and will hopefully be reported soon.

A late summer plumaged Grey Plover was a striking bird amongst the drabber winter plumaged birds.
