Thanks to Ralph Jones for sending me this shot of one of two Short Eared Owls he had on the beach at Raven Meols at 2pm today, hopefully the big influx of these wonderful birds into the UK this autumn means we'll have lots more of 'em.
Plenty around already, with birds at expected sites like Marshside and Sefton Meadows, but also the Green Beach, mosses etc.
And thanks to Neil Roberts, who sent me the following after a successful afternoon in the gloom of Plex on a November afternoon.
"Hi John, seen today:
2 European Whitefronted Geese present in with the Pinks late afternoon till dusk along with a ringtail Hen Harrier and a male Hen Harrier, Peregrine Falcon and a Merlin also present on Plex.
The pic of the Short Eared Owl was taken a couple of days ago on Sefton Meadows.
Regards Neil R"
Lovely stuff. Thanks to you both.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
