Went for a spin over Plex Moss after a very busy day on the beach - the whole world and his wife, their children, dogs etc decided to come and roadtest their summer shorts and barbecues, and who can blame 'em? It was a fine spring day.
Not much moving though - a few Peacock butterflies (far more yesterday), and Merlin getting an ill-advised mobbing from Meadow Pipits and that was about it.
Very peaceful out on Plex - a few Wheatears on the ploughed fields, and Willow Warbler singing behind Formby Hall.
Five or six local Buzzards lazily circling and mewing - the mosses belong to them now.
A pair of Kestrels mating and good numbers of stressed out Lapwings, tumbling and completing a full day's shift of Carrion Crow chasing.
30 Curlews in the fields opposite Getterns Farm.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
