Thursday 27th March 2014

Weather; Sunny spells, cloud cover 4/8, hail showers. Wind E force 3.

A single Grey Partridge present yesterday in fields south of the paddocks near Leasowe lighthouse was a noteworthy record. They have become extremely rare in North Wirral in recent years.
Today 9 Wheatears were present in the lighthouse area together with 4 Chiffchaffs, 4 Common Snipe and 30 Meadow Pipits. The 2 Twite remain with the main Linnet flock of around 20 birds. They often seem to favour the small field to the right of and just west of the western kissing gate accessing the horse paddock path.

Observers; D.H. K.D. E.W.
