23.11.15.Fieldfares, Frodsham Marsh. Bill MortonA whistle-stop visit to check on the owl show on No.5 tank towards dusk was marred by the cold damp and drizzle conditions. There was little of note although a female Merlin perched up was waiting for the Starling roost to assemble.

An adult Peregrine was present on top of the blue chimney at Weston Point and a few Common Buzzard were loafing about while a couple of Kestrel were actively hunting the embankments of No.5 tank.

The recent cold weather saw a small movement of both Fieldfare and Redwing with birds leaping from one hedgerow to the next.

The usual crow of opportunity the Raven never ceased to impress with their dinner topped up with dead carrion laying about the fields.
