28.07.15. Black-tailed Godwits, No.6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton (1)A brief visit after work and with the tide low on the river the expectations were not high and that was reflected in a limited selection of birds present out on No.6 tank.

However, you’ve got to be out there whenever the opportunity arises.

A couple of juvenile Marsh Harrier were again over No.4 tank.

A smaller than usual flock of 540 Black-tailed Godwit are always a welcome diversion especially when they are still sporting their finest summer plumage. There were also small numbers of Redshank and Lapwing but the six Ruff continue to be found feeding along the edge of the vegetation.

A passage of Sand Martins included a couple of hundred birds.
