Very few wades were in the Hoylake high tide roost today and despite the large number of Gulls loafing on the water, nothing of note was picked out.
With the sound of croaking frogs at the Lighthouse pond and snow drops appearing it felt once again very much like spring.
A circuit of the paddocks was initially proving a little quiet until two Twite were initially picked up overhead on call. They promptly disappeared, however after a short search they were relocated feeding in the paddocks with a small flock of linnet. (See Jeremy Bradshaw's entry 6th Oct 2013) Always distant they were difficult to get a clear shot of. For the sake of posterity three record shots below are the best of a bad lot !
