Odds and Sods

It has been relatively quiet due to work/Uni/Family commitments! Yet I managed to see a few goodies in between; last Sunday I had a flock of about 10 Waxwings over Stanley Road, Bootle which seemed to go down behind the magistrates court, Grey Heron and a hunting Peregrine there too. On Monday a Sparrowhawk displayed over UoL at Brownlow Hill. The yellow ringed female Pintail is still at Greenbank Park along with calling Nuthatches, Great Spotted Woodpeckers, pair of Mute Swans, and a Grey Wagtail. On Thursday afternoon a female Peregrine was around the Metropolitan Cathedral, and a singing Blackcap on Mossley Hill Drive, Sefton Park, along with singing Song Thrush, Robin, Dunnock, Nuthatch, and Redwing; Spring is nearly Sprung!

Hi Danny. Just wanted to ask if you're aware if there are any birds of note to be found on the scrubland/woods alongside Riverside drive? Do you ever venture down there?

Yes, I have had a look down Riverside Drive area in the past; but it has to be said I am guilty of overlooking this site. However, Grey Partridge can be found there, and in recent years I have seen Lesser Whitethroat there and Stonechat during the winter, It will be interesting to see how the old festival gardens turn out down there.
