04.07.13. Curlew, No 6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton

A watch over no 6 tank this evening was fruitful enough to justify a visit. 12 Common Pochard, 21 Gadwall, 200 Common Shelduck and 12 Common Teal.

4 Curlew, a Oystercatcher, 2 adult Little Ringed Plover, 12 Dunlin and the first Green Sandpiper of the summer and the first stages of southbound movements on the marsh. The male Marsh Harrier was out and about and a Peregrine was watchful on the top of the power station chimney.
