Prescot reservoirs,
A male Stonechat popped up on a bramble in the scrub today. An expected bird as a few usually start to pass through at this time of the year. 5 Skylarks went through also starting to move. A Curlew on the causeway was nice as we usually only get fly overs. 20 oystercatchers and 50 lapwing also on the causeway. 7 buzzards in the air today as they start to pair up .Only 2 pochard today, 50 tufted duck, 2 gadwall, 2 little grebe and 2 gc grebe. The goldeneye are starting to display with the males throwing thier heads back and the females swimming almost fully submerged. A grey wagtail also.
An adult med gull was seen early morning by BH.
A mid morning visit to Lea Green tip and the warehouses produced nothing of interest after some excellent birds being seen midweek.
