Eccleston Mere

Little Ringed Plover 1
Pink-footed Goose 1
Whitethroat 5 singing
Blackcap 4 singing
Willow Warbler 6 singing
Chiffchaff 1 singing
Reed Bunting 5 singing
Great Spotted Woodpecker 1
Kingfisher 1
Tufted Duck 6

The mere at 5:30am. I didn't see the LRP on my first walk around, I picked it up on my second lap. It's a surprisingly small bird, not much bigger than a long legged House Sparrow and nicely camouflaged in amongst the grass, daisys, goose feathers (and droppings!). If it doesn't move it can be a challenge to spot. Hopefully it will stay for a bit longer to let others see it.
