8th September 2014

Weather: NW-3, mild and overcast.

The high tides this week are conducive to wader watching at Hoylake and today's highlights included 3 Curlew Sandpiper, 1 Little Stint and 11 Bar tailed Godwit with some in summer plumage. 

Migrants at the Lighthouse were fairly numerous given the North Westerlies. At Lingham bridge there were at least 4 Blackcaps feeding in the Riverside Elder bush. Seven Goldcrest  fed in Sycamores was an increase compared to previous days numbers along with several Chiffchaff.

Seven Wheatear and 1 Whinchat were in the paddocks mid afternoon when there was a light Hirrundine passage south.
