Firstly can I thank all of you who have continued to visit South Liverpool Birder of the last twelve months and hopefully you will continue to do so, and a special thank you to those who have left comments; which really improve the effectiveness of the blog. I hope everyone had a great Christmas period and you have a fantastic New Years Eve and not to groggy New Years Day!
I visited Sefton Park yesterday where on the lake around the island I found a male Pochard dozing by the island (we seem to be getting these in the park annually now), female Mandarin, three Tufted Ducks, 6 Little Grebes (with some males in song), female Sparrowhawk, three Mute Swans, with a further twenty Mute Swans and five Little Grebes at the south-end of the lake (unusual to see the Grebes down that end), on the field between the cafe and the cricket club 150+ Goldfinches could be seen together with 65 Redwings feeding on the ground with the finches. Plenty of birdsong can be heard around the area at present.....warming up for spring I presume!
