10.03.16. Sunset over the Mersey Estuary from Marsh Farm, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton (9)Out on the river the gulls began to pour into the estuary from an easterly direction including Runcorn narrows and others entering from the Weaver valley and then over the sandstone hills of Frodsham and Helsby.

An adult Iceland Gull was picked up with a group of Herring Gulls barely above the sand banks but it disappeared to the west and out of sight. Another bird was located later by the Hale boys.

The area of the score banks attracted 38 Black-tailed Godwit, 90 Oystercatcher, 230 Curlew and smaller numbers of Redshank.

The evening ended with a fine setting sun.
