20.09.16. Birdlog

20.09.16. Red-breasted Merganser, MSC, Frodsham Marsh. Paul Ralston

A short walk along the Manchester Ship Canal from Ince to the Holpool Gutter at dusk there was nothing of note until a Red-breasted Merganser flew along the canal after being flushed by (no pun intended) the ship Stolt Razorbill. A poor picture because my camera was on the wrong setting and very much a record shot.

Observer: Paul Ralston.

Earlier in the day a bit of watching from across the water from Hale lighthouse revealed 3 Great White Egret and 2 Marsh Harrier.

Observer: Dave Craven.

It was inevitable that an Otter would eventually appear and this morning it did! One was seen close to Frodsham sailing club.

Thanks to Gary Powell.
