8th December 2011

Waders were much in evidence today with at least 9,000 Knot, 6,000 Dunlin and 376 Curlew counted as well as a good count of 35 Grey Plover and 10 Purple Sandpipers. It is interesting to note double figure counts of the latter along North Wirral (particularly New Brighton) and the North Wales coast.

Other birds of note today included 30 Great Crested Grebes, single Gannet and Shag, two each of Kittiwake and Guillemot and 5 Red-throated Divers. Finally the Snow Bunting was still present.
