15th December 2015

Weather: SE force 1/2

A search of the Little Eye area failed to find any sign of the Lapland Bunting, the big surprise from yesterday's visit. A drake Long-tailed Duck rapidly flew north east passed the north end of the island, and this became very much the highlight of this morning. Perhaps the same bird from yesterday?

At least four Rock Pipits were on the island, also male and female Blackbird, a Song Thrush and 2 Starlings flying down the east side.

The Great Northern Diver (above, first found on 10th), still inhabits the north end of West Kirby Marine Lake where a juvenile Shag was found later (see below).
