3rd August 2014

Weather: SW-5, warm and overcast.

Wader numbers have continued to increase on North Wirral over the last few days. At the Lighthouse Groyne s 19 Redshank. 1 Greenshank and 1 Whimbrel  were present mid morning.

As to be expected at this time of year the lemon yellow juvenile Willow Warblers continue to move through with 4 recorded in Lingham Lane.

At Hoylake beach a family of Peregrines appear to have taken up temporary residents with the adult birds partially disabling a prey item and allowing the chicks to finish the job. Fascinating to watch, if a little gruesome!
