The easterlies continue and so do the birds. In the paddocks early morning there were 3 Whinchat, 5 White Wagtail and 21 Wheatear, many of which were still present early evening. 2 Garden warbler could be found in the coastal bushes whilst 3 Grasshopper Warbler continue to hold territory.
A seawatch from the Lighthouse Car Park produced 56 Sanwhich Tern, 17 Gannet, 110 Great crested Grebe, 2 Scaup and 2 summer plumage Black throated Diver.
The Dunlin flock remained off Hoylake promanade.
Further west a male Little Bunting was trapped and ringed by (SRW and CJ) on Hilbre Island mid morning. A fantastic record for Hilbre and North Wirral. www.hilbrebirdobs.blogspot.co.uk
