Thursday 20th October 2016

Weather;  Overcast with good visibility. Wind mainly north F1-2

There was a big arrival of Robins in the Leasowe area today with around 40 individuals being recorded. An indication of a Robin influx are the constant chases in progress presumably between the local birds on territory and the migrants. Other arrivals in good numbers included 35 Goldcrests, 30 Blackbirds, 12 Song Thrushes, 16 Mistle Thrushes, 10 Redwings and 30 Chaffinches. 4 Chiffchaffs, a Blackcap and a late Lesser Whitethroat were also in the lighthouse area.
Robin;  One of a large arrival today.       EW
There was some decent overhead passage today which included 52 Pink-footed Geese north-east and 32 Skylarks, 5 Reed Buntings, 55 Chaffinches, 7 Siskins, 2 Redpolls, 60 Meadow Pipits, 8 Redwings and 22 Fieldfares east. A further 35 Meadow Pipits and 2 Teal passed south.
