Wednesday 9th April 2014

Weather; Sunny spells, wind W 3

A warmer day and lighter winds encouraged larger numbers of migrants through the Leasowe lighthouse area. Hirundines in particular were more in evidence with a total of 11 Swallows and 10 Sand Martins moving mainly north east. Grounded birds in the area included 7 Wheatears, 5 Blackcaps, 4 Willow Warblers and 8 Chiffchaffs.
A single Tree Sparrow was recorded flying west over Lingham Lane. This has become a very rare species in North Wirral in recent years. Yesterdays large numbers of Linnets appear to have moved on with only small numbers recorded.
