Admittedly I took the shot of a Migrant Hawker in the bushes around Sands Lake mid-afternoon - but there were plenty of hawkers at Marshside too.
Two Chiffchaff, female Blackcap, Goldcrest and good numbers of Common Darters resting on the boardwalk at the Sands Lake, where there were at least 50 dozing Tufties, Little Grebe etc.
Drawn to the marsh by Graham's blog info today (thanks as always Clarko!), I popped into Sandgrounders Hide, where Tony Johnston was on duty still.
He'd had four Greenshank earlier, but Ruddy Duck, scurrying Snipe and increasing numbers of Teal were parading when I got there just before 5pm.
Between 26 and 30 Pink Feet were on the far side of Polly's Pool, and later in the afternoon, I had another 50 or so dropping onto the outer marsh from high level.
Diggers, er, digging, in the Sandplant Compound (Forest of Bale is just a lone ride of bushes now) meant there wasn't much point checking it out, although I did have another two Chiffchaffs in the scrub on the southern side, and more Migrant Hawkers.
Blackbird and a single Goldcrest here too, and a respectable sized flock of Goldfinch.
A Peregrine spooked everything on MarshsideTwo, revealing several hundred Wigeon, 3 Pintail and at least 70 Golden Plover as they took flight amongst the Blackwits, Lapwings and other wildfowl.
I whizzed up to check Crossens Outer after Graham's successes there earlier in the day, and while there weren't as many waders, four Ruff and two Curlew Sandpipers were still feeding amongst the Lapwing and Goldies.
Two Little Egrets on the outer marsh too.
Unsurprisingly, the light began to go a bit by 6pm, so I headed for home through Southport, past garden sycamores looking all crinkly and yellow-browedy.
It won't be long now.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
