Prescot reservoirs
Chats and thrushes abound!!The female ring ouzel was still present for its second day briefly this morning but was pretty elusive preferring the ruff edges of the compound and covered res. Wheatear corner was very busy this morning with the male redstart, male stonechat, 3 male wheatears and 6 meadow pipits on show. 5 sand martins and 5 local barnacle geese passed overhead whilst watching these chats. A willow warber was singing in the ranch. A tawny owl called from the plantation late morning.

Puts on Deerstalker, fills pipe and berates Dr Watson for finding your blog...

Nice Blog Steve.

Damm and blast
I didn't think you would find this blog as I had cunningly disguised it with the clever title steve's birding blog. It was totally inspired by Another Place.
