Once I'd picked up the casts of the prehistoric footprints (best not ask), I had a walk down Range Lane in Formby to Cabin Hill this afternoon.
Warm sunny spells saw Migrant Hawkers on the wing, and feeding flocks of Long Tailed Tits etc. 3 Greater Peckers and 2 Jays over heading south, while the stubble field south of Range High School had 200 Pink Feet.
Nice view of 'em through the hedgerow.
Several large groups of Fieldfares went through, some big flocks moving south, high over the coast, while a few restless parties dropped into the scrub and trees, but never hanging around for long.
About 50 Curlews in with the corvids on the fields behind Cabin Hill.
Bumped into Phil Smith who'd had a Chiffchaff in the woods, and we paused to watch a few more Fieldfare going through.
Had about 350 in an hour - not bad.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
