A record of my birding wanderings around Merseyside and elsewhere plus anything else that interests me

A Swift pint on the Wirral A cracking Alpine swift was present for its second day at Barnston on the Wirral. It conveniently preferred an area around the 'Fox and Hounds' public house and after getting it 'under the belt' a nice pint of bitter was downed. This was a lifer for me although I have seen plenty in southern Europe. It was hunting insects with a few Swallows and a house martin giving excellent views.
