9th March 2022

 Weather:  SE force 5

Spring has arrived 2 Little Gulls were seen off Hilbre this morning plus this Chiffchaff, our first warbler of the year!

 To welcome the spring, Skylarks (3), Meadow (8) and Rock Pipits (4) were all singing. A very large count of 474 pale-bellied Brent (plus 2 dark-bellied) was made, not long now until some will start moving off north to breed. A single Bar-tailed Godwit and 6 Purple Sandpipers were among the waders.
