6th May 2014

Weather: SW-2, overcast with sunny spells.

Migration tailed off  significantly today with only a single Whinchat and 8 Wheatear  found first thing in the paddocks whilst a further 4 Wheatear were in Meols dunes. 3 White Wagtail were also in the paddocks. Several Lapwings remained on the inland fields however breeding sadly seems to have failed this year. A Peregrine upset the local Gulls and a Buzzard flew through the inland fields.  4 Whimbrel could be found feeding on the offshore sandbanks, whilst 2 Little Egret fed in the tidal channels. A single Lesser Whitethroat was heard singing from the Lighthouse Car park.
