Fine weather movements of a few species along the coast yesterday and today - considerable numbers (150+ an hour) of Meadow Pipits went south over Albert Rd (Formby) yesterday morning, with parties of Siskins and Skylarks and a single calling Brambling.
A lone Wheatear stuffed itself with midges around the coastal defence paling I was putting up.
Five Whooper Swans came in off the sea and headed north east there yesterday too, and Linnets and Goldfinch bounded through.
More Mipits and Skylarks going through today, and 18 Redwing south over the Alt Centre in Hightown, plus four Buzzards there, Siskin, Redwing, Blackbird, titmice and 2 Greater 'Peckers through Formby Point.
One Red Throated Diver on the gentle swell of the incoming tide there, and a Peregrine buzzing the wader roost, prompting mucho panicko.
Still two Sarnie Terns in the gull roost at Albert Rd today too.
Three Red Squirrels together near Lifeboat Rd was nice - been awhile since I've seen that many at once.
Stonechats at Formby Point and the Alt Centre.
Red Admirals aplenty and what appeared to be several Small White Butterflies - but I thought October is too late for that species?
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
