Some news for yesterday evening was of a male Blue-headed Wagtail in the paddocks at Leasowe along with two Wheatears and a Whinchat. (Stan Davidson et al) Unfortunately it could not be located today.
Today's highlight was a single Roseate Tern seen flying west at close range along with some Common Terns over the morning's high tide (Dave Haigh et al) 2 Gannets and 3 Common Scoter were also noted.
Some late migrants are continuing to arrive in the lighthouse area. 6 Wheatears were present today along with a single Whinchat in the paddocks and inland fields. Most of the Wheatears appear to be the large, upright, Greenland race birds.
