19.07.16. Shoveler, No.6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton (1)It is difficult knowing where to kick off this post but it’s always a safe bet to begin with ducks. Tufted Duck were numbering 149 birds with 12 Common Pochard, 34 Gadwall, 3 Shoveler, 8 Common Teal and loads of Shelduck and their youngsters.

A Green Sandpiper was calling unseen from the banks below where I was standing but it didn’t break cover. Apart from a couple of Curlew, a flock of Lapwing, the sandpiper was the only decent wader present.19.07.16. Sundown from No.6 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Bill Morton (1)

Well that was it really, except for a loose flight of 71 Raven heading south from Frodsham Score.
