Friday 25th March 2016

Weather;  Fine and sunny. Wind W to SW F2

A single Short-eared Owl flew west across the paddocks west of the lighthouse this morning without lingering. A Merlin did linger here, however, and was perched on a fencepost for some time. There was no sign of it this afternoon though.
A pair of Scaup were on the sea off Leasowe over the high tide period.

Other migrants in the lighthouse area included 60 Meadow Pipits, mainly in the paddocks, 4 Goldcrests, 4 Redwings and 3 Chiffchaffs. One of the Chiffchaffs was in full song near the Duck pond and could be last year's returning breeder. Observers; JB, DH, TK, CT.
