13.10.13. Pied Wagtail, No 6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton.

These easterly winds aren’t doing much for birding on the marsh (famous last words). Another below par bird watch on No 6 tank with a small return of 34 Tufted Duck and 2 Pochard presumably from the Weaver estuary. 4 Pintail, 64 Common Teal and 45 Common Shelduck. A Sparrowhawk was hunting the ditches along Moorditch Lane and 14 Raven were over Frodsham Score. A welcome return of the big female Peregrine to the blue-topped chimney at Weston Point.
