17.05.13. Golden Plover, No 3 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton (15)

No 3 tank didn’t look particularly interesting when I panned my scope over the field with the usual Lapwing, Greylag and Canada Goose all paired up. A couple of territorial Oystercatcher adding the back sound to the evening watch. Eventually my observation paid off with a late ‘northern summer’ Golden Plover looking all lonesome and should really have been sharing the field with some of its more montane cousins but alas on this occasion it was not.

There were 3 Raven on Frodsham Score and two other birds were having a lamb supper on No 5 tank.

No 6 tank: 23 Tufted Duck, 2 Gadwall, 2 female and a drake Common Teal.

Observer: WSM.

The male Marsh Harrier was hunting along the track of No 4 tank. Also 2 Sedge Warbler and 10 Goldfinch along Lordship Lane

Observers: Heather and Harley Wilde.
