The Wirral shrikes again,
A Subalpine warbler on Hilbre today and a great grey shrike in the north wirral CP provided excellent birding on the Wirral, close on the heels of the Alpine Swift. Let us hope they are still around tommorrow. Alpine swift and subalpine warbler, I see a pattern emerging here. Anyone checked Thurstaston cliffs for alpine accentor!!!

Oil spillage sparks beach clean
A beach clean up is underway off the Merseyside coast after an oil spillage from a rig in the Irish Sea.
The spillage contaminated a mile long stretch near Formby Point and people are being asked to avoid the beach.
A spokesman for BHP Billiton said a small quantity of oil was released from the Lennox platform, about five miles offshore from Ainsdale.
Droplets of oil were found on the beach about a mile north of Formby Point by the firm's incident response team.
A statement from the company, which apologised for the incident, said: "We are working actively to minimise any impact on the beach and the marine environment.
"Whilst this work is in progress, it is advised that the public avoid the area to allow the work to be completed efficiently."
An investigation has been launched into the cause of the leak.

Lets hope the birds and wildlife escape the oil unharmed.
