                   SPEKE-GARSTON.     3rd April 2013.

Great numbers of black- tailed godwits feeding on shoreline of rising tide this afternoon  2-4pm.
Counted three seperate groups of 183, 361 and largest group near sailing club of 530+.  Guess they are stocking up before moving on to Iceland, Greenland. Loads of birds in fantastic summer plumage.

 Also large numbers of oystercatcher, redshank, dunlin, shelduck and quite a few knot, curlew.

Chiffchaff in woods nearest to Speke Hall, with goldcrest, long-tailed tits.

Snipe in flooded corner near road.
