10th November 2013

Weather: NW-2, warm, clear and sunny

Fewer birds today at the Lighthouse with small flocks of Skylarks moving south. 2 Blackcap and a couple of Goldcrest were new in at Lingham Lane. The wintering Lapwing flock is now at 200 and they can be found roosting on the beach during low water. 

Bird of the day however goes to a stunning FIRECREST. Picked up on call it was eventually caught and ringed in a West Kirby garden. These little gems often slip through unnoticed at this time of year.  A great find by Alan Hitchmough and one that certainly brightened up a quiet November morning.
