In Sefton Park today the pair of Mute Swans were sitting on the nest on the island, with only two of the Little Grebes viewable but I couldnt see any nest as yet. Two Chiff Chaffs and a Blackcap in the park where the only incoming migrants and a Redwing an obvious outgoing migrant, two Nuthatches, two Pied Wagtails, and a Great Spotted Woodpecker and a Grey Heron perched in the dead Birch on the Island. Along Greenbank Lane a Ring Necked Parakeet was in Plane trees opposite Greenbank College, this is the area where I suspected them of breeding last year. In Greenbank Park the Mute Swan nest was minus yesterdays eggs and they could be seen mating; cant explain that one. Bluebells are emerging everywhere heralding spring, and Sefton Parks Daffodil displays are at their best.
A Peregrine was perched on the top of Garston gas works today at 3:00pm, and eight Farm Geese and a Grey Heron on the University playing fields on Mather Avenue.
