Preston City Centre


Sunday 10th Dec. 09.00 - 11.30 hrs.

Walton-le-Dale.
Around Sewage Works entrance gate on Winery Lane. Postcode PR5 4AR.

Firecrest ....very mobile in the scrub but gave decent views when it came close to the fence.

Goldcrest ... numerous, had 5 together at one stage.
Treecreeper.
Chiffchaff.
Grey Wagtail.
Chaffinch.

Pied Wagtail and Meadow Pipit both probably into the 100's out on the filter beds.
Flocks of Starling and Goldfinch constantly moving around.

A lively little place ... I saw more birds in my first 20 mins than I have seen in the last month on my local patches !

Roger.

Attended at the church at 1.20pm today. Waited ten minutes then Black Redstart appeared on wires on edge of church roof. Eventually made its way down to the ground via a metal ladder attached to the church wall and began feeding in the debris dropped by peregrine falcons fromthe steeple. Gave good views for five minutes then made its way back onto the roof. View from pedder street alongside the parking bays just before the entrance porch to the church

Called to see the 1st winter male Black Redstart at Preston today. Was not disappointed the bird is showing really well. Its at Saint Walbugh church. If you park up at the church (two hours free) outside go to the right of the church it sits on the wires at the top. Wait 10 minutes and it will come down to feed. You will know your in the right place as there are bird bits all over from the Peregrine that lives there!!! Good luck. Added a picture
