09.04.14. Curlew, Frodsham Marsh. Heather Wilde

A quick trip to the marsh tonight to try to see any owls, but no luck. However we did see the female Marsh Harrier flying over No.4 tank in the direction of Helsby. As she flew off approx 200 Curlew flew in and settled briefly on No.6 tank before flying off again. There was a group of 9 Pied Wagtail feeding together on the SW corner of No.6 tank. Other sightings including 2 Buzzard along Lordship Lane and about 60 Tufted Duck on the splashing Pool. One Sand Martin flew over No.6 tank towards No.4 tank and midges were everywhere! Shelduck were feeding in groups all over No.6 Tank.
