04.01.16. Little Egrets, Ince Berth. Paul Ralston (1)A short walk today along the Manchester Ship Canal from Ince Berth in the last hour of daylight and the Little Egret flock has increased to 25 birds and looked set to roost in the trees by the berth .

A Grey Wagtail was on the ship canal path and only the Mute Swan herd could be seen on the salt marsh but the Whooper Swan flock may have been close in to the bank and out of sight . A few new-born lambs were seen on the Frodsham Score with several Raven patrolling the area.
