Great to see a nice female Black Redstart flitting about at the end of Shore Road at lunchtime today - uncharacteristically flighty tho', giving me just time to get my 'scope and grab a bad backlit digishot of it on the skipyard fence before it zipped over the road and into the Pontins gulag.
Barely had enough time to admire the quivery orangeyness of its rear end.
Quite why it preferred the barbed wire and chalets to the nice dunes and perchy fenceposts of the outside world must remain a mystery.
If it ever comes out again, I'll let you know.
Still at least one Little Tern off Formby Point this morning over the tide, lots of hirundines on the move despite the windchill.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
