Prescot reservoirs,
A juv little stint was a nice suprise as I walked across the causeway today. It was very confiding as it feed on the edge of the water totally unconcerned by our presence. I noticed on bird guides that there seems to have been a big influx of little stints today.Not suprising with all the north easterlies recently. Also 1 dunlin, an juv artic tern, 1 shoveller, 6 wigeon, 45 pochard, 200 tufted duck, 7 little grebe,1 stonechat, 30 redwing and a swift. Still small numbers of house martins and swallows.

2 kingfishers today have been very showy lately, flying around and fishing at the reservoirs.
BH reported 2 sandwich terns through on Tuesday.
