06.11.17. Birdlog.

A walk along Brook Furlong Lane to Marsh Farm and along the Weaver estuary during today’s high tide.

A Great Spotted Woodpecker was on a telegraph pole while a pair of Stonechat were on the fence nearby. A Grey Wagtail was feeding near to the farm and several Raven were about the out buildings. The salt marsh held a small number of Redshank with a flock of Dunlin which settle on an exposed area of turf.

On the River Weaver a few Tufted Duck were joined by 4 Great Crested Grebe and 3 Little Grebe, Gadwall, Mallard, Common Teal and Common Shelduck. Another pair of Stonechat were on the bank at the edge of the water.
