674 Northwich Flashes

There was great excitement at Northwich when the rare black-winged stilt nested at Neumannís Flash. The RSPB manned telescopes here and we were treated to a superb view of the birds with their long, pink legs. Three chicks hatched, and though only one survived, sadly that later died as well.
