I managed to fit in the last hour of daylight after dropping the ladies off for an evening in Chester.

The light wasn’t at its best but the muggy atmosphere did bring out a ‘reeling’ Grasshopper Warbler while nearby a blast from the vocal arsenal of a Cetti’s Warbler sounded out. A pair of Yellow Wagtail were coo-cooing in their display while a Ruff moulting into its showy breeding plumage cut a lone figure in the wet areas of No.6 tank. A few shy Common Snipe tried their best to hide in the straw yellow dead plant stems. The Black-headed Gull pairs have risen to 3 pairs.

Ducks were again present and included 74 Common Shelduck, 43 Tufted Duck, 17 Gadwall, 14 Shoveler and 8 Eurasian Teal.

Raven flocks were still heading south at dusk and there must still be plenty of rack o lamb available on the salt marshes.
