08th March 2014

Weather: W-2/3, warm and mild later.

Good numbers of early migrants were in the horse paddocks including, 17 Pied Wagtail, 28 Meadow Pipit, 2 Reed Bunting, 6 Goldfinch, 10 Skylark, 60 Linnet and 2 Twite remain.

A surprise find was a Weasel climbing an old Willow in Lingham Lane. 

With a high pressure system building over Iberia and the bay of Biscay early next week there is every chance of the first 'true' summer migrants arriving at the Lighthouse at the end of the week, if not earlier.

A male Sparrowhawk was caught and ringed in a West Kirby garden where there were also a flock of 20 Redpoll. A great photo of this fearsome looking male below.
