01.11.12. Birdlog (All sightings from No 6 tank unless otherwise stated)

I managed 40 minutes birding (after work) before the sun slipped quickly below the western horizon.

400 Common Teal, 45 Tufted Duck, 20 Common Pochard, 30 Common Shelduck, 24 Shoveler and 10 Mallard.

454 Golden Plover with 600 Lapwing, 2 Ruff and 3 Redshank.

A Water Rail was calling from below the north bank of No 6 tank.

5 Raven en route to roost on Frodsham Hill.

Observer: WSM.

Please note there is now a gate attached to the previously ungated posts on the ramp to No 6 tank. If you get locked (unlikely) in, there is a contact number on the new signs along the northern side of the tank (below).
