Thursday 16th October

Weather;  A warm sunny day with light southerly winds;

Not much in the way of variety today but some interesting passage none the less. A seawatch over the tide produced 107 Great crested Grebes and 230 Common Scoters.

Overhead passage included 60 Meadow Pipits and 14 Skylarks heading east along with 4 Jays and 7 Jackdaws. 

2 Stonechats were at the Leasowe Castle Hotel and 5 Goldcrests, 7 Grey Wagtails and a Water Rail were in the area of the lighthouse. There was a large early morning arrival of Blackbirds with well over 50 birds being logged in the Lingham Lane area feeding on the many berry bearing trees here. The vast majority of these birds had cleared out by lunchtime.  Observers KD, DH.
