Weather: NW; 7-8, squally showers. cold
The cold Arctic front arrived with vengeance today and it was cold ! Large numbers of waders were roosting on Hoylake Shore and the Gull roost held at least one Yellow legged Gull amongst the 1000 or so Herring Gulls.
There was little movement offshore with a single Gannet and a couple of Diver Spp maintaining interest. Wildfowl were on the move however with Common Scoter (40), Pintail (4), Wigeon (2) and Teal (1) , all logged on the flood tide.
