One of the birds I'd set out to see was the Great White Egret. There have been a few on the Wirral in the last 24 months. Needless to say, this was one of the birds that was not playing ball on this day.
Just a head at the top of the tree.
Giving a slightly better view.
Spotted Redshanks chilling out.
Fantastic. Great picturesReplyDelete

Once in a while we have a grebe visit our cabin, not sure which variety but based on the body style I think that's what it is. - MargyReplyDelete
The oystercatcher fascinates me!ReplyDelete

Oyster catchers always remind me of the North East coast where I first learnt their name.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pics, nice series of birds.ReplyDelete
I checked Wikipedia and found the Wirral Peninsula between the Rivers Dee and Mersey. That would be the Mersey of Beatles fame, no doubt. Very interesting to someone who grew up in the 1960s. I also read that the woods, farmland, reed beds, salt marsh, beaches and lowland heath in your part of Britain are home to a wide variety of birds. No wonder, then, that you are such an excellent birder! I enjoyed this post very much.ReplyDelete
