27th November 2018

Weather: SE   4-5  vis 1 mile increasing later.

The fog today was thick enough that none of the islands were visible from the prom,  with a temperature of just above 1c and a cruel wind it was a brief pre tide visit. The 160 Brent Geese counted included 2 colour ringed birds (different ones from yesterday), a pair of Mallard flew about the islands for some time. Probably because of the short visit only 28 Common Scoter were recorded today, with 240 Cormorant.
On the North Shore were 1700 Knot, 35 Bar-tailed Godwit, 18 Curlew , 3 Grey Plover and 171 Redshank.
Middle and Hilbre both had a Song Thrush present along with the usual Robin, Wren, Dunnock and Meadow Pipit.
