28.03.19. Birdlog.

I took a walk around the River Weaver after work this afternoon. There were Tufted Duck and Common Shelduck in good numbers with a few Mallard, Eurasian Teal and Gadwall being present. c200 Canada Goose and 3 Mute Swan were also on the river with a pair of Great Crested Grebe in amongst the reeds.

Four Oystercatcher made a racket as they made their way along the water and 3 Ringed Plover were noted while a single Black-tailed Godwit was on the Manchester Ship Canal bank.

A flock of Curlew made their way out to the estuary followed by a flock of Black-tailed Godwit. A Common Sandpiper crossed the ship canal and a party of Raven were feeding on a sheep carcass on the river bank.
