The last hour along the Manchester Ship Canal from Ince Berth. A Grey Wagtail was again feeding near the berth and the Whooper Swan herd was out near the river. There were 2 Great white Egret a long way out on Ince salt marsh where several Great Black-backed Gull and Raven were feeding on a lamb carcasses possibly caught out by the high tide.

Also noted on the canal were 3 Great Crested Grebe were amongst a large raft of Coot with a few Mallard and Gadwall mixed in. A Short-eared Owl was hunting the canal bank in the fading light and a Little Egret flock dropped into a field by the berth in the near darkness.
