Monday 20th October 2014.

Weather; Rain early, clearing up to a warm day with sunny spells. Wind west f3.

Not too much visible overhead passage today at Leasowe with 16 Meadow Pipits, 4 Skylarks and 10 Chaffinches west.

4 Teal were near Lingham Lane and a Common Snipe was flushed near the western kissing gate. 8 Goldcrests and a single Chiffchaff were in scrub and trees near the lighthouse and a female Sparrowhawk hunted the Lingham Lane area.

2 Wheatears arrived in the paddocks mid-afternoon. Both appeared to be large individuals, probably of the Greenland race leucorhoa. Observers AMC, EW
