22/12/2013 West Kirby Marina Lake

Redshank: Before I started my last shift for CWT before a nice long Christmas break I decided I just had to make the most of the really good sunshine, especially knowing that the next few days we won't be seeing the sun anymore!

Turnstone:  So I headed down to the Marina Lake hoping for a good gull, but only seeing Black Headed and a few Herring loafing around on the pontoons.

The marina was busy with the local sailing club, so there where no birds on the water. However I did stumble across a small flock of Turnstone and a couple of Redshank on the rocks on the far side.

Some of my favorite waders close up looking brilliant in the morning sun.
