Plenty of birds moving south west over Crosby Marine Park mainly up to 9am this morning, with 2,500-3,000 Fieldfares chuntering away high above being the most spectacular sight.
Smaller numbers of Redwings in with them, plus Skylark, Chaffinch, Mipits, Pied Wags and Linnets.
The thrushes were coming through in flocks of 20-100 in wave after wave, but the movement seemed slow as the morning got on.
The "resident" Skylarks were fairly obliging too, feeding on the cropped turf of the northern end of the area, and two Corn Buntings were in the dunes, before being spooked.
Bemused dogwalkers and the Stonechats watched me as I digiscoped the critters.
Rimrose Valley was oddly quiet this afternoon though, with just Greater 'Pecker, Kestrels and hordes of Magpies foraging on the newly cut meadow areas.
Early doors tomorrow could be interesting if we get some of the mist forecast.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
