It was another trip to Back Pools & Bidston today with once again the Back Pools being the stars of the show with both LITTLE GREBES being present and active as well as 6 Teal (3 pairs) and 2 SHOVELEVER with the 1st winter drake still present but was joined today by a female which we strongly believe to be a different bird to that seen with an adult drake on the 15th of February.

Bidston was its normal self with the Great crested Grebe pair still present and will hopefully have another successful breeding season as well as 2 Mute Swan, 14 Tufted Duck, 6 Mallard, 2 Bullfinch, 5 Moorhen, 20 Coot & 1 Water Rail (calling) behind the B&Q Reed Bed.

Observers: Luke Anderson & Elliot Montieth


  1. How are you elly, i took a walk around the old tip at bidston that is supposed to be a nature reserve, well, somebody needs to have a word with the owners, because it is disgusting.the amount of rubbish lying around is embarrassing. Anyway I'll get off my soap box, thats all I wanted to say. See you soon Elly.

  2. 1st march Saw 1adult male tufted duck and 1juvenile on back pools plus 2 cormorant. 8 long tail tits 4 chaffinch behind bnq. At cross lane saw regular buzzard plus 1 larger buzzard and a peregrine! They are only the highlights! I go to xlane often do you want me to let you know what i see there as i know you are trying to keep lists for bidston?
