I had hoped for a bit of time with the Twite at the end of Fairways today, especially after a successful "Birdin' Bonanza" walk for work yesterday (damp gallery on the Sefton Coast Landscape Partnership Scheme facebook page), but the dismal rain over the high tide kinda put an end to that plan, so I headed up to Marshside.
Black Headed Gull drifted through my rain-spattered digiscoping attempts up at Crossens Outer for a fine selfie.
Once it had gone through, I managed some blurry shots of the Golden Plover, Lapwings and nice single Grey Plover with them (just visible in the bottom right).
Plenty of Dunlin out on the floods with the Wigeon and Teal horde, Curlew, a few Blackwits etc, but conditions were pretty grim.
It could have been worse though, I could have been as wet as a drenched Bazzo, who I bumped into and dropped off at the Bazzo Bunker to dry off.
Headed for home and "day ticked" the Great Northern Diver from the car as I drove past the top end of the Marine Lake at about 1.20pm, when it was still fishing away despite a flotilla/regatta (?) of yachts out on the water.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
