Monday 16th February 2015

Weather; Dull, overcast, light wind f2.

5 Shoveller, including 2 males, were at sea off the lighthouse car park this morning. They are rather unusual records at this location, 47 Great-crested Grebes were also offshore and Grey Plover numbers have built up to over 200 off Leasowe, a good count.

The small winter Thrush flock remains in the paddocks west of the lighthouse with 23 Fieldfare and 15 Redwings counted today.

The Laughing Gull remains at the marine lake at New Brighton and continues to show well at times on the pontoon.

There are now 4 Snow Buntings on the beach in the Derby pool/Wallasey coastguard area, 2 birds being newly arrived today.
