A Quick Trip over to Merseyside

Just a quick trip out today to blow away some of the Christmas cobwebs.  May target birds were to be  the reported White-fronted Goose and Bewick Swans in amongst the Whoopers near Hesketh Out Marsh and the Blue Morph Snow Goose at Marshside, both of which I dipped on.

However, I managed to rescue the day from total failure by calling in on the regular Little Owl at Gravel Lane, Banks and a Short-eared Owl at Lunt Meadows.  The light was great at first, but then a grey haze slowly descended to cover the sun and banish it completely by the time I got to Lunt.
