Thursday 15th September 2016

Weather; hazy early. Sunny, becoming very hot. Wind N F1

The hazy conditions this morning resulted in more migrants arriving in the Leasowe area. 18 Wheatears were logged, most arriving along the groyne and embankment and moving inland. 2 Whinchats were on the common opposite Kerr's field. 15 Chiffchaffs, 2 Willow Warblers, a Reed Warbler and 5 Goldcrests were also present, most being noted along the nature trail and around the pond. Willow Warblers are now well past their peak with Chiffchaffs now the commonest autumn migrant phyloscopus.
5 Blackcaps, a Garden Warbler and a Redstart were along Lingham Lane.
Overhead passage included a flock of 7 Skylarks, 8 Meadow Pipits and 3 Grey Wagtails headed mainly east.
