05.03.18. Birdlog.

A very brief visit after work to Marsh Farm and the surrounding area with little of note other than a flock of 8 Avocet out on the Mersey mudflats. Also gathering in good numbers were Curlew and Dunlin settling down for the night.

The Starling flocks filtered through with several thousand noted.

Out on the Weaver estuary there was a sudden increase of the numbers of 43 Gadwall with several drakes in their nuptial display.
