Early morning seabird movement offshore included over 100 Gannet and several hundred Common Scoter from Hoylake and the Lighthouse car park.
A small passage of 30 Woodpigeon and 7 Magpie moved through early morning. In addition there had clearly been an overnight arrival of Warblers with several new arrivals in the Lighthouse area including; 3 Blackcap, 3 Lesser Whitethroat, Sedge Warbler, Grasshopper Warbler, 8 Chiffchaff and 15 Willow Warbler. 2 stunning male Ring Ouzel were located mid morning in Park lane giving everyone on site great views. Despite looking settled they quickly relocated and could not be re-found by mid day.
Wheatear were suprisingly thin on the ground with only a handful being seen early morning as were 3 White Wagtails in the paddocks.
A small trickle of Hirrundines included 12 Swallow and 8 Sand Martin.
