3 wheatears, 9 whimbrel, 60 turnstones,50 dunlin and 1 sandwich tern where the highlights today. A report of a laughing gull at Hilbre island had me checking every gull.
A reservoir rarity today in the form of a house sparrow. I have been birdwatching at the reservoirs regularly for about two years and this is the first house sparrow I have seen there. A stunning male was feeding beside no 4 res. A flock of 30 jackdaws on the covered res. Not much else to report there today . Andy spot reports whinchat and reed warbler over in the safari park.
