21.10.14. Gonzalo hitting Frodsham Marsh. Tony Broome.

The tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo produced a generally windy and wild day but at dusk the rain hit with a vengeance and travelling across the Weaver viaduct at 19.00hrs saw the rain coming in horizontal sheets…a bit scary (WSM).

Images and video taken at dusk from Marsh Farm.

A force 10, but too windy and then wet, and then too dark to see anything blown into the Mersey estuary at Marsh Farm. A look on No.6 tank which was catering for a cowering bunch of 1500 gulls coming into their pre-roost, with mainly Black-headed, but 200 Lesser-backed and a few Common maybe 100 birds.
