Thanks to Rich Steel, who sent me these cracking shots of his first Wheatear of the year, which he caught up with at Leasowe Gunsite over on Wirral on March 13th.
The first one looks so great every year....

Ben Jackson had seven Buzzards and two Ravens above Willaston recently.
And thanks too to Peter Button, who sent me this shot of Little Gulls, again from over the water.
Pete had 100 Little Gulls and two Kittiwakes at New Brighton in the big blow yesterday.
Back this side of the Mersey, Derek WIlliams had Raven and three Crossbills in the pinewoods at Formby Point earlier this month, and another Mediterranean Gull (an adult in summer plumage) at Haskayne, plus 54 Rooks, 15 Grey Heron, 5 Shelduck, 18 Pied Wagtail, 98 Curlew, 5 Redwing, 227 Fieldfare and 20+ Corn Buntings in the area.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
