Frodsham Marsh and Delamere

Very quiet at Frodsham with the yellow wags and reed warblers the star turns, with lots of whitethroat and a couple of buzzards also. The spindle bushes have swarms of spindle ermine larvae munching away on them. Some bushes looking like Christmas trees draped in silk decorations!!

At delamere my first cuckoo of the year and an albino black headed gull was in the breeding colony. Only large red damselfly on the ordonata front. A 'cream wave' and 20 'drinker' larvae were of interest on the lepidoptera front.
