Frodsham Score did it again when Mark P hit a hat trick of Frodsham goals! First up was a Great White Egret along with 6 Little Egrets and then 17 Barnacle Goose…back of the net! Mark made a few enquiries and contacted Graham Clarkson from WWT and apparently there is a regular flock, in the Martin Mere, Prescott, Eccleston and Knowsley areas, they could be from here? Other birds from the same watch included, 1,000 Canada Geese, 500 Lapwing and a solitary Merlin.

Observer: Mark Payne

The Weaver Bend had 28 Common Teal, 2 Greenshank and 20 Redshank there also.

In the field and hedgerows from Ship Street was 20 Pied Wagtail and both Siskin and a small roving band of Long-tailed Tit.

Observer: Lee Lappin.
