Right, just a quick heads up to anyone who hasn't got "Wild Merseyside" yet (and why the hell not??) that I'm doing some more book signings tomorrow (Sat) at Pritchards in Formby and Crosby.
I'm at Pritchards on Brows Lane, Formby, from 10.30-11.30am; then at Pritchards on Moor Lane in Crosby from noon to 1pm.
The book is also now on sale at the Sandgrounders Hide at Marshside RSPB - just ask whoever is the volunteer on duty, and they'll get a copy for you, at the downright giveaway price of ÃÂ£4.99.
Got down to the marsh just before lunchtime today, ostensibly to deliver copies of "Wild Merseyside", but a quick butchers revealed singing Chiffchaff and Goldcrests, plus two Blackbirds around the Sandplant Compound; 60+ Avocet around the Sandplant Lagoon, plenty of Little Egrets on Marshside One, Dunlin, Ruff, Goldies etc.
Steady passage of Mipits and alba wags, with Pinkies n Merlin on the outer marsh.
Thanks to Dave McGrath who sent that huge web address about dog disturbance - you can link to it here
There's gotta be a Garganey out there somewhere.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
