Nipped over Plex Moss this afternoon, about an hour before the sun started to sink in the cold November sky.....
At first glance the moss appeared deader'n Elvis, but there were at least 2,000 Pinkies grazing on grass close to the track at the western end of the moss, which I took a few shots of in the fading light.
About 200 Jackdaws with them, and smaller numbers of Curlew and Carrion Crow too.
Farmer Palmer and his friends were out shooting on the southern side of the moss, which may explain why Grey Partidge and Pheasants were few and far between, but I saw one flock of 12 of the former halfway down the bumpety track.
Two Stock Doves and three Corn Buntings were the only other diversions, but that's winter for you.
Mistle Thrushes singing for the last few days over near Aughton (thanks Mike Price), and two were flitting around the rooftops of Old Hall Street in Liverpool yesterday - not long till they start to nest.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies....
