All quite at Leasowe !

Weather:  Winds strong gusting Southerly turning to South Westerly; Heavy rain overnight giving way to showers.

Considering the wind direction,  there was little by way of passerine passage.  Only the local Swallows / House Martin appeared to be around catching insects found sheltering around the hedges from the gusty wind.  The 8 Wheatear feeding in the, now, damp horse paddocks were joined by 2 White Wagtail; 3 Pied Wagtail and a single female Whinchat.   Despite the cold wind,  up to 6 Sedge Warbler  could be heard singing from the reeds / bushes along the inland path and nature trail - it would appear to be a good year for them.  Also appearing to have a good 'showing' this spring are Blackcaps with 3 singing ( 1 close to the nature pond and 2 along Lingham Lane).  A 'no show' from the Lesser whitethroats at either the Lighthouse car park or down Lingham Lane but by this time the rain had started !
