Delayed report for Tuesday, August 10.

Seen/heard over Stott Drive, 1 Yellow Wagtail. First time I've seen a Yellow Wagtail north of the M/c-LPL railway line.
Also a short Willow warble from the field behind the house. That is, a Willow Warbler warbling.
Have had up to 40 House Sparrows in garden, which led to the inevitable visit from a male Sparrowhawk. Now down to 39 Sparrows.
20+ Rooks daily on Woodsend Park and around Woodsend Circle, also House Martins around the old shops area.

Went out at 11.30am just got back 3.30pm.

I have checked 80% of the River Mersey from Flixton Bridge to where it joins the canal,
the only section I missed where it runs parallel to Carrington Road. Walked all the way to Barton Locks fron Irlam Locks no sign of the Smew. Several small groups of Tufted Duck along the canal also five Goldeneye plus Gadwalls, Mallards, Little Grebes, Canadian Geese, Cormorants, Coots, Mute Swans.
At Barton Locks large group of Tufted Duck with about thirty Pochard couldn't see anything special amongst them.

The has definitely been a thaw since yesterday, has it gone back to Rosthern?

Well, an imm male Sparrowhawk flew past the back garden this afternoon and disturbed about 50 Starlings that were chattering away in a tree at the bottom of the garden. It's quite a regular event but he doesn't seem to catch much, which of course is a problem for imm Sparrowhawks, as their survival rates aren't particularly good, by all accounts.

A walk from Stott Drive, to the Locks, along past Jack Lane, to Dutton's Pond and return home produced:

Locks and ETW: BH Gulls 120+ ( all seem to be adults )
Mallard 1f
Swallows 10+
Pied Wagtails 1ad and 2imm
Grey Wagtails 2imm
LBB Gull 1

Jack Lane and environs:Reed Bunting 1
Chiffchaffs 4
Blackcaps 2
Willow Ws 3
Whitethroats 1
Bullfinches 3
Jays 2

Dutton's Pond: Moorhens 2ad+1smallyng, 2ads, 3imms and 4 juvs/large yng.
Grey Heron 1
Mallards 10+
Canada Geese 10
Coots 2ads

etc,etc,etc.

Interesting that of 120 BH Gulls, not 1 juv. Perhaps related to possible mink problems at the Shell Pool NR.

I saw a bird of prey circling above Flixton (Irlam Rd / Brooklands Ave) at around 14:00. Did anyone else see it and even ID it? I only had my small bins to hand and could not make it out. I defiantly don't think it was a buzzard. Hope someone else saw it too! Didn't see in which direction it was going, it just disappeared.
