5th September 2015

A Turnstone at West Kirby marine lake that had been ringed at Hilbre in winter 2007/2008
Weather: NE force 1/2 
At last a few migrants: a Willow Warbler a Whitethroat and 3 Wheatears, residents included 3 Rock Pipits and 1 male Pied Wagtail and a flock of 32 Linnets. A Common Buzzard was a very scarce visitor, as were 2 Ruffs flying between the islands, although there have been other records of these this year.
