29th November 2015

Weather: W-F9 , squally showers

The high winds and high tides over this weekend have given opportunity for some further Sea Watching. On 28th November an adult Great Northern Diver was discovered in Birkenhead's East Float Dock by (EM). Just reward for some dedicated patch birding.

As winds increased overnight on the 28th so Sea Watchers were out in force. In addition to a reported Pomarine Skua at New Brighton there were also two Bonxies. A Great Northern Diver flew in at great height at Derby Pool and disappeared inland. Perhaps to join the one on the East float ! Other birds recorded battling the stormy seas were Common Scoter (3), Pntail (11), Red breasted Merganser (1) and Great crested Grebe (3)
