3rd November 2012

This morning a Short -eared Owl was disturbed from a geo on the east side and headed towards Middle island but was not seen again. A party of 5 Dark-bellied Brent Geese were discovered sitting on the vehicle track between the islands, they had obviously just arrived here, the single first seen on 30th Oct was still present and not part of the group. The Merlin was here again, a Goldcrest was down and Starlings moved through again, the largest flock being 120 birds. An interesting sighting was of a Rock Pipit seen on Bird Rock that was ringed and from the slightly abnormal appearance of the bird, it is almost certain to be the one of the same appearance ringed at Hilbre 2 years ago.
