01.06.13. Marsh Harrier (female), Frodsham Marsh. Paul Crawley.

Both male and female Marsh Harrier were hunting the reedbeds below the viewing area over No 6 tank and providing crippling views! A male and female Wigeon over the Weaver estuary were hangers on. The Common Swifts were typically showy, otherwise a poor showing overall.

01.06.13. Grey through a theodolite, No 6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton.

Could this image of a Grey Heron and Common Shelducks be a birding first? It was captured through the lens of a theodolite!

Observers: Paul Crawley (& image), Frank Duff, WSM (& image).

Not on the marsh but a flock of 450 Black tailed Godwit were in the Weaver valley about a quarter mile upstream from the A56 on flooded fields.  340 still present on the 2nd.

Observer: John Gascoyne
