18th April 2015

Weather: NE-2-4, sunny and cool.

A quieter day today than of late. 3 Sedge Warbler and a Grasshopper Warbler were singing by the Lighthouse pond early this morning.

A small passage of 30 Swallow, 3 House Martin, 4 Sand Martin and our first Swift headed north.

Despite good numbers of Common Redstart during recent days only a single female remained today with most birds having moved on during the recent clear conditions.  Several Wheatears arrived  in paddocks, whilst a stunning male Whinchat could be found near the western Kissing gate.

Several Wheatear, 8 White Wagtails and a pair of Ring Ouzel were present near the Langfields , Hoylake mid morning

Many thanks to Adam Jones for his shots of the stunning male Whinchat present today. Check out his blog :
