A Red theme for Merseyside,
A red rumped swallow performed superbly today at Leasowe . It was with several other swallows hunting insects in a horse paddock just west of the lighthouse. A lifer for me.
It was then off to Formby moss to see the red backed shrike which was just in Merseyside.(Only knew that after reading Menzies blog). It had a liking for the local bumble bees and caught several while I watched it. A quail was calling in a field opposite.
A excellent weekends birding.
