I was surprised to see the first signs of spring today as a number of Daffodils have began to flower in Sefton Park near to the bottom of Greenbank Lane, wishful thinking I presume!
A pair of Ring Necked Parakeets where squawking away today in the Beech trees at the Greenbank Lane entrance to Greenbank Park, also in the park 2 Nuthatch, Grey Wagtail, Mute Swan, Great Spotted Woodpecker, and the GreylagxCanada Goose hybrid.
In Sefton Park dell area another Grey Wagtail, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Goldcrest, 20+ Long Tailed Tits, 2 Ring Necked Parakeets, Treecreeper, 4 Jays, and 3 Stock Dove. Walking towards Aigburth Vale I found Redwings, a Jay and a Great Spotted Woodpecker.
Whilst walking through the Albert Dock this morning I was surprised to see a pair of Raven around the area, at one time a bird was perched on a Liver Bird (a first for me!), they frequented the area for over ten minutes; moving around the building tops on Liverpool One, Mann Island, and the Dock Road. This may well be a pair in courtship as they are one of our earliest breeders, with birds high up in the Cumbrian fells breeding in February, a breeding pair in the near future may well be on the cards.
