A summer plumaged Curlew Sandpiper remains on the beach at Hoylake together with good numbers of migrant Dunlin, Ringed and Grey Plovers.
A Great White Egret flew west from the lighthouse along the embankment this morning. This is a rare bird here.
Migrants in the Leasowe area included 3 Whinchats, 6 Wheatears and a Yellow Wagtail present in the paddocks this morning and a Redstart near Lingham Lane. Single Grasshopper Warblers were present on Meols Common and on Lingham Lane. Willow Warblers are now past their peak passage numbers with only 6 present today.
The first Cuckoo of the spring here was discovered in fields off Park Lane this afternoon.
