24 July 2015

Weather: E/N -variable. Cloud, rain later.

A brief circuit of the Lighthouse this morning saw many fledged Warblers , including Blackcaps, Reed Warbler and Whitethroats seemingly everywhere. It looks like its been a good year for them at the Lighthouse.

Many waders were on the move today including 90 Redshank, 5 Turnstone, 100 Dunlin and an adult Greenshank. 

A Raven flew in off the beach mid morning and headed off inland giving its distinctive 'croak' as it went.

As is expected this time of year on the Wirral, Med Gull numbers begin to increase so it was perhaps no surprise that yet another adult bird was on the beach just off the sea defence.
