Twite for lunch


In Southport briefly at lunchtime today and I noticed a flock of finches bouncing over the seawall and dropping in by the West Lancs Yacht Club.
A quick look revealed a flock of about 40 birds, mostly Twite, with a few Linnets thrown in.
Flighty as hell, they appeared to be returning to the roof of the yacht club, presumably there’s a handy puddle of water up there for thirsty Twite.
A few perched up on the old fenceline behind the sluice for a moment or two, then they were away again off beyond the seawall.

  1. Still two Red Admirals on flowering ivy in Ravenmeols Woods on Monday despite cool and cloudy conditions.
    On Tuesday I went to look at the Field Gentians you reported in Ainsdale LNR with Pat Lockwood.
    Counted a grand total of 266, many still in full flower.
    These are exceptionally late.
