Still working on the coast at Formby Point, and the beach has been carpeted with gulls all week.
There are thousands of the critters, all feeding in dense flocks on a wreck of shellfish - razorshells, tellins etc - mainly Black Headed Gulls, then Herring and Common Gulls, but with so many birds, you can't help but think there's a few goodies amongst 'em.
And therein lies the problem - I haven't had time to check through the flocks - it'd take all day.
I guess that's my weekend sorted out then.
The main concentrations of the birds are just south of the Tobacco Dump, with another grouping off Fisherman's Path.
Large numbers of waders, including packs of up to 20 Turnstone, were with them earlier in the week, but they have dispersed now.
Most of the gulls are feeding up on the high water mark - very tempting, I just need the weather to hold out for a few days!
Aside from that, parties of Redwing and Fieldfare on the move for the last day or so, and a "singing" Nuthatch on Albert Rd, Formby today.
And before I forget, today's "there but for the grace of God" award goes to.....
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
