Tuesday 8th April 1014

Weather; Sunny spells, Breezy, wind W, 5.

Not ideal conditions for migration today but summer visitors continue to push through the Leasowe lighthouse area nonetheless. A male Redstart, the site's first for the spring, was along Lingham Lane in the morning. Later a female Ring Ouzel was in the nearby fields. 3 Chiffchaffs and a Blackcap were also present. The Linnet flock in the paddocks has built up to over 100 at a time when one would expect them to be pairing off. The occasional large numbers at this time of year could be migrants moving north rather than local birds.
