Up to 35 Wheatear, (95% Greenland) were recorded between Park Lane and the Lighthouse today. A couple of Swift pushed through and Lesser Whitethroats were recorded at the Lighthouse Car Park and Meols Coastguard station.
A quick circuit of the paddocks between the rain showers proved worthwhile. 12 Wheatear, again all Greenland types were grounded by the rain. Other grounded migrants included 5 White Wagtail, 1 male Yellow Wagtail, and a female Whinchat whilst a Sedge Warbler continues to sing from a Hoylake Seafront garden.
Another garden tick was a fine Black Redstart found by (CJW) flitting around the 'Black Pearl' pirate ship next to the Hoylake Lifeboat station. Observers wondered if the Sparrow that chased it away may have been called Jack !
