Can you estimate the number in the flock? If you have the patience then the WeBS team are looking for your time. Just one day a month for a couple of hours to fill in the gaps in coverage all along the banks of the river. If you are interested drop Dermot Smith (who is co-ordinating the counts) an email dermot.smith@fsmail.net, or find the Mersey Estuary WeBS on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Mersey-Estuary-WeBS/216178248450013.
