25.08.13At 13.00 hrs temperatures soared to 33c, a female Sparrowhawk circled over No 6 tank ignored by the hundreds of Common Teal, Lapwing, 4 Black-tailed Godwit and Curlew. The Black-necked Grebes were still in the south-east corner of the tank. A Raven heard honking over Frodsham Score and many 100’s of Shelduck on the River Mersey at low tide. A juvenile Kestrel perched along the fence on No 5 tank was keen eared and sharp-eyed in its attempt to locate the small mammals scurrying about below.
