Goodbye to the Old and Welcome to the New Year 2014

A collection of three images taken at roughly the same time of year (December) and spanning nearly 30 years. How times have changed and 2014 should see more changes to this area.

  1. Happy new year to the Frodsham marsh bloggers and thanks for all your interesting and enjoyable blogs. Do you ever offer ‘tours’ of the marsh to very amateur but enthusiastic birders?
