12.09.13. Ruddy Duck, No 6 tank, Frodsham Marsh
500 Common Teal were present on No 6 tank including 300 on the secluded pool, some males were showing signs of attaining bright plumage. 70 Tufted Duck, 1 drake Common Pochard, 4 Pintail and an increase in Mallard numbers which reached 83 birds. The female Ruddy Duck looked forlorn on the water.

Apart from the duck species it was a bit dull and dreary this evening.

Hopefully someone might find a Yellow-browed Warbler in the hawthorn hedgerows?…The scene is set just waiting for the tiny cast.
