An hour or two before the sunset over the Mersey estuary. The No.6 sludge tank was drying out nicely with nothing to show for itself. I made an excursion to No.3 tank where a small flock of Black-tailed Godwit were eking out an existence on the very shallow pools there.

A Green Sandpiper was still frequenting the ‘Secluded Pool’ with a Water Rail, juvenile Sedge and Reed Warbler also present. A couple of Yellow Wagtail flew over and a small flock of Swallow headed west.

An adult female and a juvenile Marsh Harrier circled the area and a Sparrowhawk was on stealth mode at duck.
