I went to Parkgate to see that Yank Pipit and had a Look at Frodsham on the way back.
There were large numbers of Lapwing c 1000 on Frodsham Score from Marsh Farm in spite of two wildfowlers who were there with their dogs. Golden Plovers again present on No. 3 tank low down to avoid the brisk wind. A small flock of Meadow Pipit and 3 Raven were at Marsh Farm. No. 6 tank saw in 130 Curlew, 20 Fieldfare, 8 Redwing and a scattering of Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Reed Bunting. A quiet period (not counting Arthur’s squeaky new knee).
Ciao Guido D’Isidoro.
A pair of Peregrines were perched on the blue-topped chimney at Weston Point and must have provided some crippling views for the pilots and passengers arriving back in blighty.
Elsewhere a female Merlin flew past me on No.1 tank roughly 2 foot off the ground and then perched on a post on the bank junction of No. 2 and 5 tanks.
