All over the place today, in and out of the downpours...but not a great deal happening.
Didn't know about the Temminck's Stint reported at Marshside, so missed that one.
C'est la vie.
At Martin Mere, Common Sandpiper, Garganey, displaying Ringed Plover and a few Common Buzzards, with plenty of Swifts overhead.
No sign of yesterday's Black Tern.
Only five copies of "Wild Merseyside" left at the In Focus store, in case anyone is still after a copy.
Plug. Plug. Plug.
When the sun came out Red Admiral on the wing, when the rain came down, not a great deal of anything.
Same story at Mere Sands, although I thought I heard a spluttering Wood Warbler for a few seconds by the car park...unfortunately the song was drowned out by the hounds a-howling in the kennels next door, and I never heard the bird again.
Reed Warbler, Kingfisher etc there as usual.
Called in at the corner of Marshside Road on the way home to listen to the Sedge Warblers, which were having a whale of a time, chattering away.
At least four singers there this afternoon, with Whitethroat too, until the heavens opened again.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
