Dropped off another 20 copies of "Wild Merseyside" at Sandgrounders Hide this afternoon, on the off-chance there are still folk out there who haven't bought it.
Many thanks if you've got the book already, hope you like it - it's the most fun you can have for ÃÂ£4.99 with your clothes on or off, if you ask me (with one or two notable exceptions).
Anyway, usual drill if you want a copy - ask a volunteer in the hide and they'll dig one out for you. Not much time for a good look round today - last night's downpour saw Dempsey Towers springing a leak, and I'm pretty sure water and electricity don't mix...
There were hordes of Common Swifts feeding low down though, some zipping inches past my head on the way down to the path.
The flock included one individual with a pure white belly, which inspired a nano-second of panic before I pinned it down as an aberrant Common Swift.
Relax, relax, relax.
Good to see the Swifts delivering avian death to the bitey bitey midge population, which was really flourishing in the humid, wet conditions.
The drake Garganey was still tootling round on the Junction Pool, before it flew off towards Marshside Two, and plenty of Dunlin were on Marshside One, with three Little Egrets.
It looked just perfect for Black Tern, but no joy today - we must be due at least one in these conditions.
Otherwise Whitethroats and Sedgies babbling away, the usual waders and wildfowl and not much else, but the biggy could be out there anyday now.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
