All the wonderful birds and wildlife of Lancashire, Cheshire, North Wales and further
04/07/2014 Norton Marsh, Warrington
Osprey: Another after work trip but this time with Dawn. I was hoping to see the bird perching on the fence posts however when I arrived it was miles away feeding on a fish and guarding it from several scally Magpies.
I went back the following morning as Phil Oddy reported the bird going to roost at around 9.30pm, I arrived at 6.30am, but alas the bird still remained on the far side of the marsh.
After feeding this back to Tom at the Cheshire Wildlife Trust it was really good to be involved with some reactive media reporting. Tom was able to get this in the Warrington and Runcorn press.
