Sankey Valley Park Bewsey

A Kingfisher was by the St.Helens canal in the park this morning.

Also a flock of 36 Lapwings appeared to be following the course of the canal as they headed South, and huge

flocks of Woodpigeons were moving around above the park.

Gadwall clearly greatly outnumbered the usual Mallards on the canal through this section of the park.

340ish mostly Black-headed but also some (25ish) Lesser Black-backed Gulls a couple hundred feet high in a tight defined "column" in the air over the wasteland at the East end of the A574 Birchwood Expressway. 5 - 10 Gulls arriving every minute from the South East direction (Woolston Eyes direction). At a guess feeding on flying ants?
