Gorgeous gin-clear morning today, but another busy day of marram planting and Christmas tree wrangling at Formby Point meant no time for birding again...c'est la vie.
Few small roosts of waders along the tideline, and a semi-gull roost at Ainsdale, otherwise just picked up songsters starting up in the bright sun - Chaffinch, Dunnock, Coal Tit, Great Tit and Song Thrush all starting to belt out their tunes now.
Three Great Tits moving north along the coast yesterday may just have been movement, but a paltry handful of northerly-bound Mipits over the last few days were hardly enough to suggest their early spring passage is beginning in earnest yet.
Anyone else seeing anything out there?
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
