I was out and about this morning around No.6 tank. The herd of c1000 Canada Goose were again on the water with the Greylag x Canada Goose hybrid in their midst.

Shooting was taking place on Lordship Marsh which made the waders very nervous and several hundred Black-tailed Godwit took to the air and moved out towards the only refuge (of sorts) on the Mersey estuary followed swiftly by a dozen or more Ruff.

Along Lordship Lane a Kingfisher was sat on one of the outflow areas and sped along the ditch when it spotted me walking by.
