Stock Dove - 40

Siskin - 30

Goosander - male

Gadwall - 7

Mallard - 11

Fri 1st & Tues 5th Dec

This is probably the best thread for this sighting.

Unbelievably whilst driving to Liverpool on both mornings I managed to spot a Green Sandpiper bobbing on the edge of a pool at the side of the M62 westbound, not too far from the Birchwood slip road. I could see it bobbing clear as day, bear in mind Im in a limited speed vehicle which helped.

Unfortunately has happens every year when the first frost arrives the old farmer decides to come out with his big gun and stands in the middle of the set aside firing at anything that moves. So that area then becomes quieter .

AM-PM

West pool seems to be disturbed at the moment not sure if its being fished at night but there was very little on there today, even the Great Crested Grebe were missing, also the Motorway Service Station seems imminent as some tin buildings and the farm gate into the field at junc 11 have been removed, those tin buildings have probably been there since the 2nd WW, as they looked more like shelters than farm buildings some called them the maggot farm. 

of note 

Fieldfare - hard to count as many were over in all directions but 300+ around the area and similar numbers of Redwing

Pochard-1

Stonechat -4

Buzzard-4

Kestrel 3

Whinchat - 1 Juvenile  -- Nice to still have the Juvenile Whinchat present today on the patch which makes it the equal Latest ever sighting for me and most likely for the site . Amazing to think this would normally be in Africa now for the winter , so its a mega for the site so late in the year, and the only sight record of the species this year for me is this bird. Also amazing is the previous latest in 2019 was in exactly the same spot on the same date and was a Juvenile . 

plus the usuals

Not my latest here as I had one on the 18th of October a few years ago but a highlight as its the first I've seen at the site all year.
