12/03/16

Coming back from one of my annual walk overs to Hilbre Island - Link - I made my way down to Docks to see what the 10m tide had done. With Brent Geese, Great White Egret and Goosander at Hale and Frodsham hopes where high.

Lapwing
This evening all birdlife was concentrated in and around the East Float with the drake Scaup still about with 19 Cormorant and 17 Great crested Grebe, with the wasteland north on the Wallasey flats producing 1 Curlew along with 2 Lapwings (males & displaying) with the 4 Ringed Plover which are nicely paired up. Hopefully it'll be a good breeding season for waders as well as terns this year!
