Prescot reservoirs
The wind had dropped a little today which made it much more pleasant than yesterday. The female ring ouzel was present for its fourth day and the male redstart for its seventh day. BH reported house martin over no 3 res which is the first of the year at the reservoirs. I caught up with the common sandpiper on no3 and had 15 swallows and 6 sand martins over no 4 res. The 3 male wheatears had moved to the green box with a pair of pied wagtail. There were 4 chiffchaffs, 1 willow warbler, 2 nuthatch and BH had a blackcap singing in yates wood this morning. Also on the reservoirs today were 27 goldeneye, 3 pair of tufted duck, 3 great crested grebe, 2 gadwall, 8 mallard, 1 ruddy duck f, 8 cormorants, 3 buzzards, 1 kestrel m , 4 oystercatchers and 20 lapwing.
