We paused in Cheshire on the way to north Wales to facilitate a meeting with Tom McKinney.
To mark this momentous occasion, we visited Sandbach Flashes. There were lots of Black-tailed Godwits feeding (which was nice) and a few other bits and pieces: Buzzard, Tree Sparrow, Kingfisher...
After that, Tom guided us to a nearby pub, The Green Fox in Elworth. Except it wasn't really called The Green Fox - it's just that the sign had faded and the fox had ended up a greenish colour. It's just the Fox Inn. It was gloriously sunny so we sat outside at a picnic table for lunch and pored over the road atlas, gathering extra gen for forthcoming trips.
