4th March 2017

Weather: SE force 2

An early start paid dividends with early spring passage evident.

 A single female Stonechat outside the obs was soon joined by a pair which moved around the south end of the island chasing each other. 

A party of 5 Jackdaw moved overhead east whilst Pied Wagtails moved through and an early White Wagtail ( the first of spring) alighted briefly. 

Several Meadow Pipits are now singing on both the main island and Middle Hilbre, joined by Linnets also singing.

 A Peregrine spooked the waders at the North end but passed by heading south.
Two Canada Geese joined the cast of spring migrants closely followed by a single Raven which quickly moved east towards the Welsh hills croaking as it went.
