Hooley still blasting in from the south west this morning, making a morning count somewhat challenging, but I betcha there was a Leach's lurking out in the bay somewhere...
Smallish gull roost by Crosby Marine Lake, which held nothing out of the ordinary, and still two young Great Crested Grebe on the water, a single Tuftie and four Scaup, which refused to be photographed properly, hardly surprising as they bounced around on the chop.
One small flock of Gringoes around the lake, a few Linnet, Mipits, Pied Wags and Skylarks, otherwise quiet.
Eugene and Dave found a feisty (if the word can be applied to such an insect) ladybird out on Rimrose Valley, which I'm hoping Mike Bird can id for us (assuming you're reading at this late hour Mike).
It was a whopper, and mighty active as I tried to snap it.
If it turns out to be a Harlequin Mike, I promise to whack it with a big stick.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
