Thursday 13th April 2017

Weather; Cold with sunny spells. Wind W-NW F3-4

The continuing cold and breezy conditions with the wind in a constant westerly direction has not helped migrant arrival conditions in the Leasowe area today and for the past few days. Overhead movement was sparse today with just a handful of Swallows and Meadow Pipits, 2 Siskins, a Redpoll and 4 Lapwings.
Best of the grounded birds was a male Ring Ouzel in Kerr's field late morning which was later seen to fly north over the embankment.

Most migrants were concentrated in the more sheltered Lingham Lane area where 12 Blackcaps, 14 Willow Warblers, 5 Chiffchaffs and a single Whitethroat were logged. The Little Owl continues to call near the bridge.
