Mistle Thrush feeding 2+ young high up in the roof of the stand inside Old Trafford today (10 March 2010) during the Man United vs Fulham match. I have photos taken from the crowd, but the site doesn't seem to want to let me upload them.

What with Ravens and Kestrels at JJB now DW at Wigan, various important ground nesting birds at Manchester City's ground and rumours of Peregrines roosting at Bolton, maybe this is a thread quite a few will contribute to?






This must be quite a regular site as I remember a family party of mistle thrushes actually being on the pitch (on the far side) before a Man Utd v Coventry match about 25 years ago (I remember it was Coventry because I supported them). I'm not sure the young were fully fledged so I was not hopeful that they got away before I lost sight of them. Cov won though, so everything was great!!!biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif




I have a vague recolection of regulalry seeing a 2 Mistle Thrush at Old Trafford during my Stretford End Days and flying to an area which was probably a nest.
