I took a run out to Frodsham Marsh in Cheshire at 'first' light this morning, arriving around 6am. I mainly went to try and find some migrants in the shape of Whinchat and Yellow Wagtail but could not locate any. However, still managed to have a good three hours with anice bit of varied birdlife.
Meadow pipit in the soft first lightPlenty of noisey sedge warbler in the reedbedsLinnet and Stonechat
A bird you don't often find on the ground, the swallow collecting mud for a nest.
and the highlight of the visit for me a close encounter with a male Northern Wheatear.
