The second segment of the Frodsham Festival of Walks brought out singing Chiffchaff with Blackcap and whitethroat were heard on the way to No.6 tank and 2 Brown Hare were frolicking in the field while several Swallow hawked low over the field.
On No.6 tank had Common Shelduck, Mallard and Northern Shoveler were present alongside 2 Mute Swan with 4 Little Grebe, c40 Black-tailed Godwit feeding on the far bank. A couple of Marsh Harrier were over the reed bed and 2 Avocet were seen on a scrape. The ‘ring tail’ Hen Harrier (per myself & Idris Roberts) made it into the darling month of May and flew from the ‘Splashing Pool’ then over No.6 tank.
