The north bank,
A lovely sunny day today produced an excellent 35 white wagtails feeding beside the floods around Speke coastal park. Also 3 wheatears, 2 chiffchaffs, 20 meadow pipits, 6 skylarks, 11 linnets,2 stock doves,1 cormorant and a greater spooted woodpecker .

At Oglet Lane a very smart little owl posed on top of a chimney before an angry lapwing chased it off. Also 30 shellduck, 1 turnstone, 20 redshank,10 curlew and good numbers of nesting lapwing.

At hale marsh a flash of yellow was what I was hoping to see today and 2 yellow wagtails amongst the small flock of white wags were nice to see. A little egret was feeding with a heron and 4 redshank and a few lapwing also. A fox looked strange as it sat right out in the middle of a field watching the world go by.
