Hesketh Out Marsh

  • It must have been deafening!

    85 Skylarks, 4 Corn Buntings, 3 Reed Buntings, 2 Yellowhammers, 2 Sedge Warblers and 4 Whitethroats all singing.  The warden must have pretty good hearing to distinguish individual voices in such an orchestra.  Also spotted early this morning were 2 Common Terns, 2 Curlew, 8 Dunlin, 1 Avocet, 5 Wheatears, Barn Owl, and 25 Hares. There were plenty of Lapwings, Redshanks and Oystercatchers on territory too.

     

     

  • Cooler northerlies have limited activity.

    Like nearby Marshside, a quiet day. A Corn bunting singing, a Whinchat, 2 Wheatears, a Sedge warbler and Whitethroat  was it apart from 3 Stock Doves, 8 Swifts and a flock of 25 Golden Plover in the fields to the east.
