Great to hear a Song Thrush singing away in the garden at dusk at Dempsey Towers this afternoon - the length of the days is just starting to edge out now - only a fortnight or so before the first Avocet comes back to Marshside, and perhaps no more than six weeks till Wheatear time.
Saw a Magpie prospecting round an old nest in Litherland earlier in the day, and the Herring Gulls are displaying away around the rooftops of Liverpool's Old Hall Street.
Back at Dempsey Towers I was hoping for a Brambling round the feeders - they usually turn up as the Chaffinch numbers start to grow, but no joy yet.
Otherwise the usual stuff zipping about.
I had to wait in for the "roofer with no ladders" - a bit like "the man with no name" except a little less effective, so watched the Woodpigeons doing nothing as the sun set.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
