More Skylarks.

Up with the Lark Saturday morning and set off for the N Wirral coast in search of an early Wheatear - not a migrant to be seen but caught up with Eddie Williams who I'd only seen once since our S African trip last June. A beautiful morning with only the Skylarks to keep me occupied although two flyover Ravens and a handfull of Black-tailed Godwits were also logged.


No migrants for me but someone in West Kirby has reported two White Wagtails. Amazingly amongst the first in the country with none reported on the south coast.

The garden feeders are now attracting both a male and female Blackcap whilst frog spawn has appeared in Stanney Woods - a good three weeks later than in previous years.

Looks like you will have more success this weekend with 2 Wheatears at Leasowe being reported, unless of course they are yours.

No such luck Jase. Working my balls off at the moment & driving back and forwards to Leeds. A nightmare journey. Hope all well in the further most outpost of the Empire.

Bugger all here not for at least another 2/3 weeks. Can't come soon enough.
