Frodsham Marsh – Bill Morton

Bill Says:-

“Frodsham Marsh has been my patch since I first toddled along its dusty tracks with my Mum in the early 1960s.

I have grown up with the many changes that have occurred on the marshes over those years, some good and some bad.  Frodsham Marsh has been a magnet for migrant birds and in particular rare birds over decades, and I hope to illustrate some of them on my talk.

I’ll take you through some of the developments which have created a rich network of habitats from the ‘Black Gold’ (sludge), which attracts many new breeding birds for Cheshire and Wirral, to pioneer new moves north.  It’s an embarrassment of bird riches.”

This illustrated presentation will take place at St Bridget’s Church Centre, Church Road, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 7HL.
