Weather; Mainly overcast, warm with southerly wind f 3-4.
Most of yesterday's birds had cleared out today from the lighthouse area and it was a much quieter day. Some overhead passage was noted including 30 Chaffinches and 12 Siskins flying east and 25 Meadow Pipits and 6 Skylarks west. Leasowe seemed to be by-passed entirely by the impressive winter Thrush movements seen elsewhere on the Wirral with not a single Redwing or Fieldfare recorded.
Birds on the ground in the lighthouse area included 8 Goldcrests, a Stonechat, 11 Song Thrushes and 4 Chiffchaff. One of the Chiffchaffs at the duck pond, probably the grey-buff one seen badly yesterday, was seen well by several observers and seen to have a full set of features corresponding to the Siberian race 'Tristis'. As it was not heard to call though it can only go down as being a 'probable' To complicate the issue one of the other Chiffchaffs showed intermediate features but called like the 'normal' collybita race. Observers; KAD, DH, MGT, EW.
