Shaping up nicely for a good bit of seawatchin' this week - if the wind and showers hold up, Leach's Petrels could be offshore any minute.
It is getting a bit late for 'em, but I feel we deserve our annual petrel hit, if only to balance out the surreal number of Balearic Shearwater sightings off North Wales at present - are they making them there or something?
Tides are nice and high, especially at the weekend, but anytime from Thursday could be good.
Formby Point for the certifiable (and I happily include myself in this category), New Brighton for those who like their comforts, or Crosby front for the in-betweenies.
Check online or in Lavers for the best tides.
Eyes to the waves everybody, eyes to the waves.....
PS Glossy Ibis flew into Martin Mere earlier today - at least Bill and Kate will have something to look at now....
