Sorry about this folks - the "comments" gizmo on the blog is still not fixed, but I am reliably assured by the great and the good at the Echo that the very finest techno minds in Trinity Mirror are applying their fuzzy little noggins to the problem as we speak.
Thought I'd drop a bit of gen on the blog anyway in case anyone is still out there - good watching up to 8 Bramblings visiting the feeders at Dempsey Towers today (the pic above is recycled from a week or two back, which is kinda green, if hardly original).
One of the males is getting pretty dark around the face now.
Sprawk scattered them, titmice and Greater 'Pecker, so I went about my chores.
Song Thrush singing away in a few places today - and a Nuthatch calling in trees behind the DGH on Town Lane, Southport (into every life a little rain must fall).
Bazzo tried a seawatch earlier in the week off Formby and got the following on Tuesday:
Formby Point, 1140-1415:
Red Throated Diver 17
Great Crested Grebe 4
Common Scoter 130
And John Gramauskas got some shots of the Twite flock on Ainsdale beach on Tuesday too - which appear to show a different sequence of colour rings to those up at Weld Road, so there maybe two groups on the coast after all.
More details on that one to follow asap.
And I'll let you know as soon as the "Comments" thingie is back up and running. I promise.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
