If you have been birding, walking, cycling or generally enjoying the benefits of being out and about on Frodsham Marsh and you are approached by Servo Security  and they tell you that you are not permitted to be on the marsh tracks. Please ask them for their i.d/name and write down their details including vehicle registration. I will forward you complaints to the local authority and the wind farm committee. Please bare in mind under no circumstances is anyone permitted into the compound work areas.

  1. One problem with wind farms, they only produce power when the wind blows and have you noticed how often when it’s cold here there is no wind. Conventional power stations need to be on standby (at their least efficient) producing carbon dioxide to provide power for peak times such as advertisement breaks in soaps and football matches at breakfast time and when people get home from work. What if there is no wind at the time ? . How do you store electrical current produced by wind farms when demand is low?. One possibility is using it to power hydrogen production which can be stored in a relatively simple manner; in turn this stored hydrogen could be used to produce low carbon electricity. When hydrogen is burnt it emits only water, in my opinion that is the way forward, oh and nuclear fusion please let me know what you think.

  2. Drove along the M56 towards Chester as I came over the weaver stood out like a sore thumb. But driving from Chester blended into the ICI back drop. OBS the face of the marsh has changed will take a while get use to it. How many are going up! Hopefully the birds will learn and adapt..I will get down someday Chris
