Dense freezing fog covered the coast today until lunchtime, leaving birds a bit disorientated.
I was down at Albert Road, where Fieldfares and a few Redwings emerged from the cold grey curtain, all low from the west, but probably critters circling round in the local area rather than a hard weather movement.
Pinkies called invisible above once or twice, and the wader roost over the tide looked about as miserable as it possible to be - Grey Plover, Barwits, Curlew, Oycs, Knot, Sanderling and Turnstone.
Two Lapwings headed south low over the sand - you should be in Ireland by now!
Didn't get a chance to look for the Waxwing in Stapleton Rd, Formby, this morning - but a betting man would be keeping tabs on the berries in the car park at Freshfield train station these days.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
