Hoping for a few Avocet at Marshside today, given their arrival at Martin Mere earlier in the week, but I couldn't see any (I'm sure it's just a matter of days before they're back now).
A Peregrine scared the bejabers off Blackwits, Wigeon, gulls etc on Marshside Two before a prolonged spell loafing on a branch off the peninsula.
The young male Marsh Harrier was quartering around on the outer marsh too, with Mipit, Rock Pipit and Skylark in the air.
Had a look off the peninsula over the high tide and came across the first winter Glauc having a break from the Green Beach as it sat among the waders and wildfowl at the marsh edge.
Long, long way off though.
Despite the flat calm sea, nowt offshore apart from Cormorants, although it was a bit murky.
Small gull roost of the usual sp on Marshside One, with about 250 Golden Plover there (and a further 250 on Crossens Inner).
Common Buzzard circling high over the Hesketh Golf Course.
Ruff, Snipe and Dunlin feeding on M1 along with the Blackwits.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
