A visit during the high tide period and a flock of 200 Black-tailed Godwit were on No.6 tank and I bumped in to Mike from Runcorn who picked out a single Golden Plover and Curlew Sandpiper with his telescope along with several Ruff in attendance alongside a flock of Redshank.
Two skeins of Pink-footed Goose passed overhead with one flock heading north and the other heading east. Good numbers of Raven were noted with several feeding on fallen (dead)stock on No.3 tank.
A flock of c100 Golden Plover were watched leaving No.5 tank towards the Mersey estuary.
There were a flock of 50 Linnet in dead trees to the east of the marshes.
