29th September 2022

 Weather:  NNE force 4,   N3 by noon

The Merlin was about early but soon headed off towards Hoylake but the Peregrine arrived over tide and was still around on the ebb.

A Raven was heard calling but not seen, although a single appeared later and was probably the same bird.

There were 77 Brent today and 11 Shelduck. A Goldcrest was in the paddocks this morning and a Skylark came through as did 9 Swallows. Two Goldfinch landed on the bunker then moved onto the ragwort to feed on the seeds.

 A single Sanderling roosted the tide on the west side with a few of the Turnstone.


 Other waders were 26 Ringed Plover, a Bar-tailed Godwit and 108 Curlew.
