Some time later (about 10:15, I guess), I was walking along the footpath between Lowfield Farm and Hazells Farm, when I heard a Ring Ouzel alarming. Minutes later, I was briefly watching a female in the sheep field at TL187503, some 1000m north of my earlier 'probable.'
In the ploughed field adjacent to Everton Park (where RIB had a White Wagtail last week), there was a distant, unsexed Wheatear, and my first Garden Warblers of the year were at Sandy Heath and Deepdale. Lesser Whitethroats seemingly all over the place this morning.
Times approximate as I left my 'phone at home...good job the biggy didn't drop.
