Prescot reservoirs,
A greenshank was an excellent bird for the reservoirs today. This less than annual migrant at the res was on the causeway this morning which was in itself unusual as they are usually flyovers. 2 little ringed plovers, 2 common sandpipers, 3 oystercatcher and a few lapwings also. 100 swifts,1 sand martin,20 house martins and 20 swallows were in the air with at least 7 buzzards.
The good numbers of swifts today proved to be an enjoyable challenge to photograph.
