Thanks to Rich Steel for sending me these two gorgeous shots of the Point of Ayr Shorelarks...stunning pictures as ever Rich!
While I think on, has anyone seen the Ainsdale Shorelark since the beginning of the week?
Wild, but fairly quiet down at Crosby today - big gull roost north of the Marine Lake, with Lapwing, Curlew and Oystercatchers in attendance and at least 500 Starling feeding in the rain-sodden grass.
Single male Goldeneye on the water (I frisked him for mussels, but he was clean), plus two Great Crested Grebes, an adult and a juv, which Eugene McCann and I watched clearly displaying in the afternoon, which was odd.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
