Burton Point & Denhall Quay, Cheshire 31st August

Thank you to the 12 recorders who joined us on the Dee Esutuary for this recording day.  The weather wasn’t particularly warm and was fairly overcast most of the day, however, with this being the 2nd re-arranged date for the trip, we made do.

We were met by Graham Jones, RSPB Site Manager who introduced the site and pointed out the accessible areas.  The first being an area of wet woodland and fen at the outlet of an underground freshwater aquifer.  Many also took the opportunity to explore areas of saltmarsh and sandstone exposures on the shore at this point.

Recorders: Dave Bentley, Philip Brighton, Sue Budd, Jim Cresswell, Bryan Formstone, Keith Fowler, Richard Gallon, Tony Hunter, Belinda Nixie, Richard Rowlandson, Julia Simons, Clive Washington, Rob Zloch

A developing species list is given below, with more to be added in the coming weeks and months as recorders identify their specimens. As well as providing us with a list, recorders are asked to formally submit their recorders via their usual channels (iRecord is recommended).
