26.05.15. Swift(s), River Weaver, Frodsham Marsh...,

After work and time to drop in on the marsh with the emphasis on watching the Swifts over the River Weaver. As always this species never fails to enthrall and entertain and at one point one particular bird flew at chest height between me and my telescope..amazing!

Out on the river Tufted Ducks were sheltering against the north banks of the river to avoid the cold strengthening westerly breeze. The Weaver Bend had a flock of 34 Black-tailed Godwit with birds commuting between there and the Shooters’ Pools.

Walking back to Brook Furlong Lane and a freshly arrived female Cuckoo was sheltering from the stiff wind in one of the fields east of No.5 tank and close by was a male suitor.
