Merlin, No 3 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton.

A (female) Merlin perched and really tame on an elder bush along the track on No 3 tank this evening. This is the same bird Paul Crawley photographed last week and has some bluish-grey feathers on the upper scapulars so, a little unsure to it actual sex? Although without much to compare size with I’m fairly certain it is a female because it looked a large individual. Images by WSM.
