09.05.13. Linnet, Frodsham Marsh

The marsh was good in the morning but nasty later (the wind was that strong it blew the fence at the viewing point on No 6 tank down! Despite this the Cuckoo made an appearance from the track along No 5 near the first black gate. A Marsh Harrier was hunting all over the marsh, seen on half a dozen occasions.

There were Meadow Pipit and Linnet all over especially on the road to Marsh Farm hiding from the elements behind the raised bank there.
09.05.13. Wheatear, Frodsham Marsh
Lordship Marsh had 3 Wheatear hiding behind lumps of soil for protection from the elements, the image shows how blustery it was on the birds feathers. I finally managed an OK shot of a Linnet, they nearly always fly off just as I assume the (photo) position.
09.05.13. Meadow Pipit, Frodsham Marsh
I also got a Meadow Pipit shaking its head blurring the crown to make an interesting pattern.
