30.07.14. Juvenile Marsh Harrier, No.4 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Paul Ralston

The juvenile Marsh Harrier continues to be seen on the marsh and it appeared on No.6 this morning (FD). Presumably the same bird was perched in a hedgerow and seen by Rake Lane from the M56 motorway at 4.30 pm (Shaun Hickey).

A Cetti’s Warbler was again vocal at a site on the marsh. 2 Water Rail, a Great Spotted Woodpecker and 11 Redwing were nearby to keep it company.

A Stonechat favoured No.1 tank while along the River Weaver 8 Snipe and a Green Sandpiper were flushed by shooters on the aptly named Shooters’ pools.

Additionally, 30 Redwing and 2 Chiffchaff were on Runcorn Hill (WSM).
