After yesterdays boost to the Life List I decided an early(ish) dawn(ish) raid was due on the local patch and what better way than a Viz Mig up at Anderton 'Hill'.
Having been well briefed by the Wizzal Wonder on the latest migration movements ie Tree Pipits in good numbers over, on and in the mist nets of Hilbre Island a mornings migration watch was a must.
6.00am till about 6.40am and the job was done, bird in the bag at the first attempt...

2 Tree Pipits over calling
one Snipe
a huge flock of mixed hirundines
several Linnets, Greenfinch and Goldfinch
a couple of groups of Lesser Black Backs
and that was about it, time for work.

PATCH YEAR LIST 129. thats 94.85% of Patch total.
