1st April 06 Crosby Marine park.
I visited Crosby today in the hope of some little gulls and migrants. I found both but the migrant was not what I expected. I found a beautiful female Snow bunting which was at the south end of the shore feeding close to the fence. There have been some snow buntings earlier this year at Crosby but they have not been seen for a couple of weeks so this bird is most probably a new bird on the move. Whilst watching the bird with Tim Vaughan a Little Gull was seen making its way out into Liverpool bay which completed the day for me.
