Gadwall, Wigeon, Shoveler, Teal etc all still pretty tatty from Nels Hide today, although a reasonable flock of Golden Plover were worth checking (albeit fruitless checking), a Ruff or two were around the Blackwits, Snipe, and Redshanks etc.
Plenty of Pinkies about, and many Skylarks in the air, with a Rock Pipit over the Sandplant compound as Bazzo and I shambled about.
The leucisticy Red Crested Mess-chard was still on Marshside One - no shame.
20 odd Ruff on Crossens Outer, with Little Egrets further out, but a look at Mere Sands Wood was perhaps more entertaining when we hit a reasonably sized feeding flock of 50 odd birds - titmice, Goldcrest, Nuthatch, Brambling, Robin, Chaffinch, Siskin - on the northern side of the reserve.
Good to work through.
Jays squawking everywhere here, and mucho Teal on the water, with Bullfinch, Tree Sparrow and Redwing in the woods.
Ten out of ten to Mere Sands for still selling Wild Merseyside too!
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies....
