(Report by John Clegg) When we arrived at Hooton Station we had to fight our way through 300-400 people who were queueing for the train to Liverpool to see the Sea Odyssey giants. On the Wirral Way we heard Great Tits and a Robin singing and had good views of Great Spotted Woodpecker.
We had lunch at the restored Hadlow Road station, then continued all the way to Neston. Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff were singing all along the Wirral Way, Forget-me-Nots were in flower and we had a good close sighting of a pair of Treecreepers, flying from tree to tree.
When the sun came out in the afternoon we saw lots of butterflies: Orange Tip, Speckled Wood, Peacock and Large White. We got the bus home from Neston. A total of 24 bird species were seen
