No, it’s not a typo error (for a change)! I’ve included an extract from an old note-book covering this period in 1998 at Frodsham Marsh. Hope we can connect with something as good this week?
Hobby hunting over No 6 tank and 2 Avocets on flooded pools there this evening.
Observer: P Crawley
There are several favourable sites to watch on Frodsham Marsh. But, one in particular looks really promising as it’s been developing over the last few weeks, The heavy rains we have been experiencing have been slowing flooding the fields. An ideal wetland for feeding Black-tailed Godwits, Tufted Duck and Oystercatcher has been created. The area is located east from the parking area (and pipes that cross) at the south-east end of No 1 tank. The concrete platform by the white stile next to the pipes provide easy viewing over the flooded fields, without disturbing the birds feeding there. Spend a short while here before heading off to the Weaver Bend and it may reap some rewards?
