Weather: SSE 4-5, 6/8, good vis
A lovely morning but very quiet bird wise. However, a build up of Black-headed Gulls (c300) had already been noted on West Kirby beach between WKML and Little Eye and whilst a search of these did not produce anything different there were also good numbers of Lesser Black-backeds in the area.
At Little Eye 7 Bar-tailed Godwits and a single Knot were evidence that waders were still on the move but the Little Egrets fishing the gutter and the Reef's tidal pools were most likely local breeding birds (but where from?)
A few Common and Sandwich Terns were noted offshore as were 25 Gannets and 3 Great Crested Grebes graced the ebbing tide.
