Tuesday 20th October 2015

Weather; Cloud early then sunny spells. Wind NW F2-3

There was a large arrival of Goldcrests in the Leasowe lighthouse area this morning with over 40 individuals noted, most being in the area of the pond and nature trail.
A Yellow-browed Warbler was also on the nature trail this morning but had presumably moved on by the afternoon, when it could not be re-located. 2 Chiffchaffs and a single Blackcap were also grounded in the lighthouse area and 2 Wheatears were in the paddocks.
Greenfinches continue to move west, with around 15 noted today, together with 25 Chaffinches, 40 Meadow Pipits, 10 Skylarks and a Redpoll. Over 300 Starlings moved east, along with 2 Jays. 2 Grey Wagtails were at Lingham bridge and the Greenshank was at the groyne.  AMC, KD, KAD, EW.
