Monday 4th August 2014

Weather; Sunny and warm. Wind light W to NW later.

Although it was low tide during the period of observations waders are becoming more obvious at Leasowe. 47 Turnstone and around 20 Ringed Plover were in the area of the groyne. Overhead 6 Swifts and 2 Sand Martins passed quickly through.
The juvenile Cuckoo was in the horse paddocks all day, using the fence lines as vantage points to capture caterpillars.
A general increase in birds was evident in the area of the duck ponds with more Chiffchaffs, Blackcaps and Reed Buntings present than of late. 3 Willow Warblers were also present here with further singles at Lingham bridge and on Park Lane. A Lesser Whitethroat was also at the duck pond.
