Stealin' the wind from our sails



An exercise in perspective....


I thought Formby Point wasn't bad today, but Neill's just e-mailed me from Australia, if you can't handle hardcore bird envy, don't read any further.....

Tides are good this week and Barry McCarthy was at Formby Point today - he reports a steady passage of terns, inc 215 Sandwich, 2 juv Arctic Skuas and 22 Manx Shearwaters. Worth a look all week really.

I think this young Blackbird was just attention seeking a day or so ago at Dempsey Towers - it's not THAT hot anymore (and yes, I do know the grass needs cutting).

Wind looks good....

Looks perfect for seawatching at the moment, but here's a cautionary tale....


For all the mothmen and mothwomen out there - catch details from the weekend....

Muggy day on the marsh


Quiet, with very little water at Marshside now....these four Snipe were feeding at the Hesketh Road end of Marshside One.


How wild was your seawatch?

Now that's what I call a raging hooley!
Managed to get down to check the stormy sea off Ainsdale for an hour or so between 4pm and 5.10pm.

Text from Bazzo....5pm


Barry McCarthy caught the tide for a seawatch at Formby Point this afternoon (1.20pm to 4.10pm) - 2 Storm Petrels, 237 Manx Shearwaters, 5 Little Terns, 1 Arctic Skua, plus Gannets, a few scoters, Arctic Terns etc - tomorrow could be a belter if the wind keeps up!
