The clear overnight conditions may have helped clear out the vast majority of migrants that were in the Leasowe area yesterday. No Wheatears were present and Chiffchaffs were down to 3 and Goldcrests to 4.
New arrivals were few but included 2 male Stonechats near the car park, a Willow Warbler along the paddocks footpath, 4 Pied and 1 White Wagtail in the paddocks and 2 Redwing off Park Lane. 14 Meadow Pipits and 6 Chaffinches were the only overhead passage birds, all flying east.
A pair of Bullfinches were along Lingham Lane and the Little Owl was again calling to the west of Lingham bridge from private land.
