Off peak ticket

No apologies for blogging yet more pictures of His Royal Peachiness… when the wind brings you Whinchats, the very least you can do is enjoy the pants off ’em!
Stunning birds.
That said, back in the lunchtime routine in the dunes south of Shore Road at Ainsdale this week, and the briefer visits later in the day are certainly a different kettle of fish.
Or chats.
Far less activity, although tonight’s heavy rain may have grounded some stuff hopefully – who’s checking the mosses for the “D-bird” tomorrow???

A good break from the desk each day though, and any encounter with a Whinchat is to be savoured.

23.4.19, 1245-1345:
Willow Warbler 6, Whitethroat 9, Gropper 1, Sedge Warbler 1, Wheatear 1, Stonechat 1, alba wag 2, Swallow 3, Little Egret 1 (plus Buzzard, Kestrel, Mipits etc).

24.4.19, 1245-1345:
Whitethroat 7, Willow Warbler 9, Sedge Warbler 1, Gropper 2, Whinchat 1, Redpoll 1, Wheatear 2, Skylark 3 (plus Buzzard, Kestrel, Linnet, Mipits, Greenfinch etc).

Doubt I’ll escape the green coalface for a day or two now, so don’t forget to let me know what you see….many thanks.
