I finished my day off with a walk along the River Weaver. Common Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler and Common Whitethroat were vocal along Brook Furlong Lane where a Western Reed Warbler was on territory along the Weaver path.

A Mallard and her new brood of ducklings were being watched closely by a Grey Heron as they made their way along the river bank. On the shooters’ pool were 3 Common Snipe, 2 Black-tailed Godwit and a single Ruff were being buzzed by a couple of anxious Northern Lapwing, a flock of c40 Black-tailed Godwit flew over heading towards No.6 tank.
