Birding tour round West Lancs drew us to the young Rosy Starling behind Frydays Chip Shop in St Helens. Incredibly confiding and not bothered by its appreciative audience. New tick for Simon
This was followed by stops at Martin Mere and Marshside. Ruff and Black Tailed Godwit showed off in front of the hides. Lancashire 2017 bird report duly purchased. Marsh Harrier and Peregrine hunting at Marshside over the numerous Geese, Egrets and Ducks flying around. Adult Mediterranean Gull by the marine lake in Southport. So close I even got a picture on my phone!
