09/11/15

In the finial 10min of day light me and mum made a quick visit down to the Docks to see if anything had been blown in by todays winds. The fact that the sun was going down and the sky was basically black didn't really help as you can imagine. At the Egreton Dock mum had the 1st winter Moorhen which is still present but being elusive.

The Morpeth Dock was barren, mean while on the East Float there was a flock 14 Canada Geese feeding by the Clock Tower, not Church! With a Pied and Grey Wagtail at the Tower Quays. On the float it's self there was a gull roost of 250c birds which mainly consisted of Black-headed Gulls with a few Common Gull; similar story on the Alfred Dock but there was 50c birds at the roost there. Todays highlight was by far the return of the 2 Juv Mute Swans from Bidston Moss. One bird was amongst the gulls in the roost while the other flew over head heading NE towards Hale.
