Wednesday 30th September 2015

Weather;  Warm and sunny. Wind SE F2

A similar day to yesterday at the lighthouse with most bird activity  being in the morning, possibly due to a slightly reduced visibility at that time which cleared later.
The most interesting feature of the morning was a strong passage of Coal Tits with small groups of between 2 and 5 arriving at the sea wall and making their way quickly inland, mainly along the nature trail. A total of 36 Coal Tits were logged by the end of the day
Overhead movers included 20 Swallows, 4 Skylarks, 7 Chaffinches and 6 Siskins east and 8 Grey Wagtails and 35 Meadow Pipits mainly south. 
Birds grounded in the lighthouse area included 5 Chiffchaffs, 6 Blackcaps, 4 Goldcrest and a Wheatear.
2 Wheatears were at the eastern groyne at the Leasowe Castle Hotel while 4 Sandwich Terns were offshore and a Peregrine flew overhead. 

An adult winter Med Gull was in the Hoylake Gull roost over the high tide.
