Observer: Greg Baker.
We dropped in on the marsh late in the day and managed a walk along the track above No.6 tank and with some of Greg’s sightings we added 43 Raven leaving Frodsham Score and heading south east over Fox Hill. Also a female Marsh Harrier and singing Lesser Whitethroat along Moorditch Lane.
Also a distant view of the recently laid service track that dissects No.5 tank and accessing No.1 tank (if any of that makes sense?)
Observers: Sparky, WSM (and images).
