30.07.13. Wood Sandpiper, No 6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton.

A Little Egret flew in at dusk from the east. 3 Dunlin, singles of Common, Green and Wood Sandpiper.

One – two Marsh Harriers were noted.

Common Gulls out numbered Black-headed gulls for the first time this summer with over 200 roosting on the tank.

Again good numbers of non-breeding and breeding ducks included 10 Pochard and the bubbling Ruddy somewhere on the marsh?

Several hundred Swifts were forced to feed along the banks of the tank by the brooding thunder clouds overhead.

Observers: Don Weedon, Frank Duff, WSM (and image).
