25th August 2020

Weather:  ESE 5-6, 8/8 cloud, rain, poor vis

A poor day weather-wise but not a bad day for observations began with pouring rain and a Teal just off the North End.

A single Raven appeared over the South End, no doubt one of the regular pair that have been seen recently presumably from the breeding pair at Hoylake.  

A redhead Goosander flew up the gutter as the tide flooded and the Yellowhammer remained on the island but was only seen a couple of times between rain showers.

The afternoon tide proved fruitful with good numbers of Common and Sandwich Tern as well as 24 Little and 3 Arctics, as well as 5 Manx Shearwater and 3 Arctic Skuas.  

A single Common Sandpiper was noted at the south end in the drizzle early evening.
