The Black-tailed Godwit flock were back this evening with 382 birds clustered in two groups. A lone Whimbrel was asleep in the shallow waters. Nearby a Greenshank spent its time feeding along the edge of the shoreline. A flock of 81 Dunlin were present with a few Redshank. When the Whimbrel woke up, had a preen it flew off to the north calling. A short time later 4 more birds dropped in but didn’t linger and followed the first bird and headed in the same direction.
Towards dusk there were loose flocks of 8-10 Raven heading south from Frodsham Score and I managed a count of 51 birds.
