A grey dull and rainy day and only a brave soul would venture out and do some birding in it. Step forward Paul and his trusty saunter from Ince Marsh along the Manchester Ship Canal. There were two Little Egret out on Frodsham Score and a flock of 1000 Lapwing with Golden Plover mixed in with them. A Common Buzzard in the fields adjacent to the Gowhow works and was the same bird from last week and the same bird from Leasowe on the Wirral (see pic). A female Peregrine was watching from the pipes and stacks of the factory there.
Observer: Paul Ralston.
