02.09.15. Wood Pigeon, No.6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton02.09.15. Ruff, No.6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill MortonA couple of hours birding No.6 tank after work wasn’t that productive but with a gammy foot it was difficult hobbling about this evening and particularly difficult negotiating a slippy bank. Anyway, enough of my woes. The Airbus Beluga flew over on its way to Chester.

The birds were few and far between but a young Peregrine was practicing its aerial skills and stooping at Shelducks and gulls over the tank. Another bird was again perched on the tall blue-topped chimney while a Sparrowhawk chose the hedgerows for its dinner.

A Greenshank, 14 Ruff, 29 Ringed Plover, 300 Lapwing and a few Dunlin were sheltering on the mud.

Also notable were 127 Tufted Duck, 4 Wigeon, 1 Pintail and several hundred hirundines.
