Marshside, Southport, Lancs - 4th November 2006.

Highlights of a couple of hours at Marshside included this adult winter Yellow-legged Gull roosting on the inner marsh, and an ad Little Egret frequenting the outer march near the sand plant. Other birders seen included, 1 Barnacle Goose with Pink-feet, 1 Merlin, 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Stonechat, many Wigeon, c20 Black-tailed Godwit.

Having to be home by 14:00hrs meant I had left the area c30 minutes prior to the discovery of a rough-legged Buzzard just up the road at 'Hundred End'.......... AAARRGGHH!
