20.06.12. Birdlog.

1 Greenshank, 46 Shelduck, 10 Pochard and 63 Tufted Duck on No 6 tank this evening.

Observer: Mark Payne, WSM.

An aerial view from the north-east and clearly shows the water systems in place at Frodsham Marsh. The marsh is sandwiched between Ineos Chlor works at Weston village and Weston Point in the foreground. Stanlow oil refinery is situated in the distance. The water systems are, the River Mersey (right), Weaver estuary (left) and the Manchester Ship Canal (running through the centre right of the image). No 6 tank is positioned at top left. No wonder the marsh has got an enviable reputation for the variety of wading birds, and the marsh covers many types of the right habitat for them.
