Weather: SW-2, calm and clear.

With the high tides a new years sea watch was the order of the day. Highlights from Hoylake included 5 Teal, Common Scoter, 3 Goldeneye, 51 Red throated Diver, 1 Great Northern Diver and a Slavonian Grebe.

Elsewhere the Kingfisher was seen from Lingham Bridge and the Greenshank continues to winter at 'Greenshank Groyne' Leasowe.

  1. Hi Mike, I am lucky, in so far as I have considerable height from the first floor sea watching room allowing distant Divers to be picked up with relative ease. However if you are keen to see Divers from North Wirral without the walk to Hilbre, then I recommend Red Rocks on a calm sea. A 30 x scope will be a must.
