Waiting for the next wave…

Too sunny with too much sand-blow to try a seawatch off Ainsdale yesterday, but today was a bit better – the gale force SWly had dropped down, although it was still strong, and it was cloudy and murky out beyond the flotilla of kiters.
I gave it a bash over the tide from 1130-1300, and although it was relatively quiet (Ainsdale is not the best place to seawatch from on the coast, but needs must when the Devil drives), it was pleasant enough watching Gannets and smaller numbers of Manxies arcing effortlessly south into the wind.

24.5.20 Ainsdale, 1130-1300, SW/Wly 4, cloud, mist:

Gannet 84
Manx Shearwater 25
Common Scoter 33
Shelduck 5
Kittiwake 1

You can’t win ’em all – hope you had better luck out there today than I did?

  1. White Satin Moths, Broad Bodied and Four Spotted Chasers and a teneral darter that didn’t sit still, all on the wing today at Ainsdale LNR.
