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


The Wood Sandpiper still present from first light with 3 Green Sandpiper on the pool north end of No 6 tank. If you go and take a look be mindful of scaring the ducks feeding there (and because of yesterdays rain watch your step coming back down the bank).

A juvenile Great Crested and two pairs of Little Grebe (one pair with two recent chicks), 100 Tufted Duck, 12 Common Pochard, 70 Common Teal, 67 Mallard and 14 Shoveler.

A pair of Marsh Harrier and c16 Raven flighting in from the south (presumably Welsh birds heading out to Frodsham Score).
