10th November 2012

Another peak in numbers for the Brent geese today with 202 counted included 2 that were seen to arrive from the north west, also 400 Shelduck were noted in the Hilbre area. Purple Sandpipers also reached a new high of 11 birds for this winter and Redshanks were more numerous with about 200 present. Four Little Egrets were on the shore. Passerines were scarce, a single Rock Pipit, a female Chaffinch, a Redwing and a Song Thrush were all that could be found.
