The view from the southbank of the River Mersey looking towards Fiddlers FPS.
Fed up with the usual fare of counting Green Sandpipers and Blackwits at Haydn's Pool and Dunlins on Neumann's Flash a sojourn down to the old stomping ground was in order.
Settling down on the embankment overlooking the mudbank opposet Fiddlers Ferry Power Station my attention was caught straight away by the sight of my third ever LITTLE EGRET at Moss Side, feeding/wading on the far side of the river of mud.
Having seen my first only last year this obliging ex old patch mega seems to be spreading everywhere and no doubt other local patchers will be adding Little Egret to their patch lists as well...nice!
and not a Tesco carrier bag in sight (in joke back at Neumann's)
