Today's spring tides saw another spectacle on the Dee marshes as birds were forced out by the advancing high tides. At least 3 Short eared Owls and 4 Hen Harriers were observed quatering the marsh in search of prey items such as the skylark below, doing it's best to evade capture by a Hen Harrier
Further north at New Brighton the high tide had moved a good selection of waders onto the pontoon including 15 Purple Sandpiper and a Greenshank. Also on the marine lake were 3 Cormorants, 1 Shag and a drake Red-breasted Merganser.
