Frank took the tiller and guided the good ship Frodder’s on a cruise to the River Weaver and its ever-present Red-necked Grebe. The routine for this bird is either sleeping or eating (what a life!).
24 Black-tailed Godwit, Avocet and Stock Dove were on, over or about the Shooters’ pools.
The two ‘set down’ Red-legged Partridge were again in fields off Half Furlong Lane. A male Yellow Wagtail was at the back-end of the I.C.I tank and a Jay was over No.4 tank.
The drake Lesser Scaup was again sleeping, fishing, sleeping etc etc, four drake Pochard were new in, and a pair of Gadwall had 12 ducklings and were all on No.6 tank.
Frank ended his day with a singing Wood Warbler at the NW corner of Blakemere, Delamere Forest.
