There was a couple of inches of snow at Frodsham Marsh today and it seemed to bring a lot of finch flocks into the south-west corner of No 5 tank. Approx 65 Linnet, c10 Reed Bunting, c30 Goldfinch, 2 Stonechat and numerous Blue and Great Tit. It was quiet a spectacle in the snow. Also in No.5 tank a flock of 39 Skylark dropped in and a count of 13 Common Snipe.

On the track around Redwall reed bed I flushed out two Woodcock, my first ones down there for a few years.

Construction Work

I have been reliably informed about something that make effect some breeding raptors on No.6 tank. Contractors have begun work today with earth diggers in the construction of a sand washing plant at the junction of No.3/No.4 & No.6 tanks (adjacent to the ‘Splashing Pool’). WSM.
