26th April 2015

Weather: W/NW-3, cool and sunny.

A cool stiff westerly slowed migration temporarily today with just two new Reed Warbler and a Whitethroat recorded along the 'nature trail' today whilst only two Wheatears were found in the paddocks.

Highlight of the day was a stunning male Pied Flycatcher in track side bushes along Park Lane. A scarce bird on the Wirral this is our second of the spring . Present for most of the day the bird was obliging and allowed many to catch up with this stunning summer migrant!
