Impressive old hooley from the south west today which effectively kept most things down and out of sight on the mosses - a situation further exacerbated by a shooting party out on Plex.
A guy stopped to ask if I knew anything about the Eagle Owl that has been seen along the Cheshire Lines - I didn't...anyone know anything about this????
Meanwhile there was still a juvenile Marsh Harrier hunting over the Withins, while out on Plex itself, Common Buzzard and Kestrel kept to the stubble fields and hay bales as the wind ripped across the fields.
About 1,000 Pink Feet between Plex and Carr Moss, but nothing out of the ordinary amongst them (Martin Mere currently has Ross's Goose and Barnacles in with the Pinks).
A few big Woodpigeon flocks in the stubble now, with smaller numbers of Stock Doves in there, and one or two Meadow Pipits battling south.
If this rain eases, it could be worth another seawatch tomorrow.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
