Birding Frodsham Marsh (Warts and All)
When you do the whole marsh and see only 3 Magpies its time for a couple of cold beers ! Nonetheless I braved the 29 degrees midday heat and managed to see/hear the usual finches and warblers and a few Reed Bunting, but only two Lapwing, two Raven, one Buzzard, two Greylag Geese, three Pied Wagtail one Kestrel and one Sparrowhawk. Lots of Swallows and many Swift particularly over Frodsham Score.
The large flock of Canada Geese has moved to the other side of the Mersey with several hundred lining the bank on the North side . Adult with young Coot, Mute Swan, Tufted Duck and two creches of Shelduck chicks.
Ciao Guido D’Isidoro.
