Formby beach

We had a nice walk along the beach at Formby today. Despite the relatively large numbers of people and dogs on the beach, there were still quite a few birds, including a lot of gulls which were feeding on the tideline. I saw some of the larger gulls eating starfish. Waders included about 200 Dunlin, 10 Sanderling and a few Oystercatchers. There were about 20 Common Scoter offshore, but star bird was a 2nd winter Mediterranean Gull.

I don't think that the Med Gull is in this picture, but I'm happy to be proved wrong!
