11th March 2015

Weather: SSE force 5, later 7
The first Wheatear of the year was found near the lookout this morning, this is a few days earlier than average, and the fine looking male was most welcome.Other firsts for this year were 2 Collared Doves, a Sparrowhawk that flushed about 70 Redshanks as it flew between Hilbre and Red Rocks, and 3 House Sparrows that dropped in at the south end. A single Goldcrest was in the trapping area, a Wood Pigeon was also logged, and the female Stonechat was still on Middle Eye.
