With the winds and tides finally coinciding for decent seawatching this week, I was hoping for a bit more at Ainsdale today - if Wirral and Cheshire can have BB Sand and a Buff Breast, with that stonking Citrine Wag down at Conway, why shouldn't something good come our way?
Didn't happen tho' - although with the number of fine Dunlin scurrying about off the Green Beach, I'm sure a few hours scanning could be worthwhile down there if anyone has the time.
Some superb summer plumage Grey Plover off Weld Rd over the tide today, otherwise it was tideline dancing Sanderling all the way.
Bit of a jellyfish wreck today too.
Meanwhile, thanks to Ron Jackson for sending me links to his videos of Spotted Redshank and Curlew Sand at Marshside.... "oh for a smidgin of the manna that falls on North Wales and Wirral", says Ron - I know what you mean buddy....
Equally stunning are Austin Thomas's action shots of Swallows - a wee project he's been pursuing for a week or two - couldn't do this digi-scoping....ta Austin!
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
