19.01.14. Pylons on Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton.

Sparky and myself made it to No. 6 tank just when the sun was sinking over the yardarm (or one of the electrical pylons that march through the marsh).

Ducks were gathering to roost with an increase in the numbers of Tufted Duck from yesterday with 156 birds, 12 Pochard, 100 Common Teal, 34 Shoveler and 65 Common Shelduck.

19.01.14. Cormorant roost, No. 6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton.The Cormorant roost looked pretty with the sun dropping behind a cloud over the distant factories and illuminating the waters of the sludge bed.

We bumped into Tony Broome at the viewing area after his visit to see the Buff-bellied Pipit over the way on the Dee Marshes.
