75 Curlew, 150 Black-tailed Godwit and c 250 Black-headed Gulls on flooded fields by the M56. The fields are situated from Robinhood Lane opposite the church, Helsby, cross over the motorway via the footbridge and either view from bridge or seek out a path to view the fields there. This flooded area is where I saw the big 200-300 Black-tailed Godwits yesterday. Worth checking out if you’re in the area?
