Hale Lighthouse lays across and to the north of Frodsham Marsh on the banks of the River Mersey.
Hale is watched over by a handful of observers including Rob Cockbain (who was watching birds at Frodsham Marsh long before most), he can now be found scouring the hedgerows and mudflats there. A lot of the birds that migrant across the river both north and south, cross over here and at several points at Frodsham Marsh (see below). Highlights have included Honey Buzzard, Osprey, Hawfinch, and Blue-headed Wagtail. So, for the best advantage/stand point/ position be at the north-east corner of No 4 tank, and given enough time and the right weather conditions you should be rewarded for your efforts.
Just give me a call when you find it first!
