Wind slight south-west, humid low cloud cover with periods of prolonged sunny spells.

Paul Crawley saw a male and female Bullfinch on the marsh side of the motorway bridge at Marsh Lane. 4 Avocet, 3 Black-tailed Godwit and a single Yellow Wagtail were all on No 6 tank.

Paul also received a text from John Gilbody who had seen 2 Short-eared Owls on the evening of the 29th. Interesting to find birds still present here, it makes you wonder?

Common Whitethroat is a typical summer visitor to Frodsham Marsh and their scratchy song is evident on these warm summer evenings. Image by Paul Crawley.
