14.05.15. Little Ringed Plover, No.3 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton

After work trip to No.3 tank for a look over the mitigation area and work on the infrastructure of roads onto No.5 tank continues inĀ earnest.

Birds present on No.3 tank included 9 Avocet a new high total this year 2 Little Ringed and a pair of Ringed Plover. I had a raptor which came in from the west with the sun behind it and managed to lose it behind a belt of trees but managed to get some shots of it. Having had a little time to mull over the images I’m slightly perplexed to its identity but it looked good for something special…for a while?

Anyway, several hundred Swift were hawking over Frodsham Score with Swallow to add to their numbers.
