Common Swift: After yesterdays disappointing trip to New Brighton for a fruitless trip to see the Little Swift in the miserable rain, today has been a stark contrast. It has been bright and sunny and I was surrounded by Swifts, ok not Little Swift, Instead I had to settle for Common Swift, although still great to watch.

Blow Fly: I couldn’t resist getting the macro lens when I saw this spectacular little fly whizzing around.

Frodsham Marsh also threw up one Redshank, Blackcap, Common Whitethroat and Lesser Whitethroat and a flock of 20+ Goldfinch many juvenile. I also saw a stunning male Marsh Harrier on tank no.6 and tank no.5
