21 March 2015

Weather: NE-4 decreasing, sunny.

A glorious morning produced  few grounded migrants. 4 Wheatear were in 'Hoopoe Hollow' whilst another 2 birds were near Wallasey coastguards.

Two Snipe passed over high whilst several Teal were to be found on the River Birkett.

Our spring passage of 'White winged Gulls' continued today. A 1st year Iceland Gull which was picked inland of the Lighthouse. The bird flew west in a mixed flock and disappeared to view.  

Offshore 2 Velvet Scoter were seen from dove point during high water. A female Long tailed Duck was a surprise find amongst the 15,000 Common Scoter which continue to frequent the waters off the East Hoyle Bank.

A fantastic day was rounded off by an Osprey seen by one lucky observer over West Kirby, being mobbed by Gulls as it headed North.
