We had a great afternoon around the marsh today, No.6 tank held a large flock of Golden Plover, with a few possible Grey Plover with them? There were lots of Wigeon and Gadwall, few Avocet and lapwing too! The new scrape had more Avocet,few pairs of Black-tailed Godwit, the males were bright copper. Ducks included Mallard, Wigeon, Shoveler. Frodsham Score was full of Common Shelduck, Canada Goose, Raven and a lovely pair of Stonechat by the pipes walking round No.5 tank. There was a flock of about 35 juvenile Mute Swan feeding on the wheat fields. A possible Marsh Harrier in the middle of the tank and lots of Common Buzzard floating about! Another great day at the marsh!
