A Short-eared Owl spent most of the afternoon in the horse paddocks west of Leasowe lighthouse today giving prolonged perched views.
Migration continues at a trickle here with 2 Goldcrests in the area of the duck pond together with our first obvious migrant Chiffchaff of the spring, a bird with a ring on the right leg which could not be properly read (others may have more luck, see photo)
Around 20 Redwings were in the Park Lane area together with 2 more Goldcrests. Meadow Pipits continue to pass through in decent numbers with around 70 birds being logged, mainly in the paddocks and on the common in front of the lighthouse. 4 Stonechats are also in this area.
