Thanks as usual to Rich Steel for the latest selection of his superb images, taken on both sides of the Mersey.
Reeling Grasshopper Warblers - you can't beat 'em, although male Wheatears are pretty cool, and Rich has even had a dabble with those two Marshside perennials, Avocet and Blackwit.
As ever, the link to Rich's site is on the right - thanks again for sharing!
I had a quick check for Dotterel on the Withins and Plex Moss this morning - no sign yet, but conditions were perfect for passage, with hordes of Wheatears scattered about the fields - there were flocks of 13, 5, and 7, plus plenty of singletons all over Plex.
Few new Sedgies singing.
Nine White Wagtails in one field, and five Whimbrel in the crops opposite the Cheshire Lines cycle path.
The two fat white chickens, or Cattle Egrets by any other name, were still tootling round the cows by the caravan park at midday.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
