Mr Twain must have heard my moan from yesterday and gifted us with some welcome sunshine today!

Frodsham’s big flock of Black-tailed Godwits dwindled today to 600 birds the rest were taking a sabbatical at Pickerings Pasture across the river.

250 Dunlin, 30 Redshank, 3 Avocet and singles each of Knot and Common Sandpiper  were all on No 6 tank.

Green Sandpiper on No 3 tank, 2 Yellow Wagtails (male and female), female Marsh Harrier on Lordship Marsh and male Marsh Harrier seen on five different occasions all over the marsh.
