Lightning quick tour of Marshside today, in between trips to the dump - picked Bazzo up and left him heading north to Crossens with Neill H.
Plenty of birds around, good sized melee of Wigeon, Blackwits, Goldies, Lapwing etc feeding at the back of Marshshide Two and Crossens, but no sign of the Goosander that Graham reported earlier.
A few Kestrels and a Merlin on the outer marsh, with small parties of Pinkies dotted hear and there.
The Ross's Goose was around earlier in the day, before flapping over to Martin Mere with the Pinks, and up to 12 Little Egrets had been on the outer marsh/mudflats.
Beady-eyed, this Kestrel watched a Stonechat and Robin flitting around the south side of the Sandplant compound wall, but the Stonechat got more hassle off the Robin than the raptor - it chased it off whenever it got into its feeding territory.
Skylarks chirruping about over the outer marsh, and a fair few Snipe dotted about, otherwise fairly quiet.
Redwings, Fieldfares, Curlews and Mipits passing over Dempsey Towers this afternoon, with one or two Skylarks and a few small Pink Feet skeins.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
