Thursday 8th September 2016

Weather; Showers early, the becoming dry, clear and sunny. Breezy, wind SW F3-4.

A Little Stint and 2 Curlew Sandpipers were with many hundreds of Dunlin on Meols shore yesterday.
The continual clear weather and winds in the westerly sector have not been great for migration in the Leasowe area over the past week and today was no exception.

The morning shower may have contributed to the appearance of 20 Chiffchaffs, 7 Blackcaps and a Reed Warbler mainly in the Lingham Lane area although these quickly dispersed. 4 Wheatears were present on Meols common together with a Stonechat and a few Meadow Pipits are starting to pass through the paddocks on their return migration.

A Greenshank and 150 Redshanks were on the western groyne. A Raven flew over the paddocks. Sightings of Ravens at Leasowe have increased greatly recently with almost daily records in the past few weeks.
