|Wheatear at Hesketh Out Marsh, 14 April 2012.|
Yesterday evening I paid a visit to Hesketh Out Marsh RSPB. It's always a bit of a challenge in windy weather, more so in a north-easterly in spring, but there were a few migrants around. It was good to see my first local White Wagtails in the ploughed field alongside 6 Wheatears.
Pair of Gadwall on the salt marsh reserve, 18 Avocets, 6 Swallows fighting their way north and 13 Golden Plovers. Several Brown Hares around too.
Quick look at Marshside this morning produced very little although the Garganey had been seen.
Better luck next weekend, hopefully.
