12.08.16. Goldfinch, Frodsham Marsh. Paul Crawley (4)Today down on the marsh I saw a Yellow Wagtail flyover and calling near Marsh Farm and another (possibly same bird?) over the junction of No’s 3,5 and 6 tanks. A juvenile Marsh Harrier was over the mitigation and over on No.1 there were male and 2 female Wheatear on the pipes. A Common Snipe flew over No.6 heading towards 3. The Black-necked Grebe and a Great Crested Grebe were again on six. The young of this years Kestrel were to be seen widely over the marsh.A flock of 60 Curlew managed to find space to feed despite the abundance of turbines on no.5 tank. A golden charm of dozens of Goldfinch illuminated the trackways.

A few Common Swift were moving south over Weston towards the marsh this evening (WSM).
