Had a good day today, started off at South Gare to look for any migrants. The wind is STILL in the west, not good at this time of year. However immediately saw a Spotted Flycatcher, though it hid when I tried to photo it. Then closer to the pier I saw a Lesser Whitethroat, managed some nice digiscope shots, but it was difficult because it was so twitchy. Also Willow Warbler, Redstart and Wheatear.
Then went to see Hooded Merganser north of the river at Calor Gas Pool it was very distant though. It started raining, so I ducked into Saltholme, saw Black Necked Grebe, Little Grebe, managed some nice shots of Little Egrets - finally, also Greenshank, Curlew Sandpiper, Dunlin, Yellow Wagtail and possible Whinchat. Had a few people asking about the digiscope set up again.
