Found 20 minutes for a quick look at Marshside ton Sunday evening, just after a short sharp rain-shower - fairly quiet, apart from a few encouraging signs, including two or three parties of Mipits heading south, and small numbers of Swallows hawking low over the road.
Grey Herons beginning to lurk around the water under the Hesketh Road platform, coldly weyeing up the 15+ Moorhens there, and occasionally throwing the odd interesting shape.
Seven Teal on the Junction Pool, with a groups of Blackwits winging in high from the south.
Pretty quiet down at Ainsdale today - a few Painted Ladies and Peacock about, with Gatekeepers and Speckled Woods, Gannets and Sarnie Terns offshore.
The first Pink Feet will be back any day now.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
