0740 - 0900, same area again.
Fairly quiet tho still a bit of migration with flocks of Fieldfare and Woodpigeon over, no Pinkfeet though. Felt like some birds had actually moved out eg some of the Chaffinches and Blackbirds.
Also had Reed Bunting, Meadow Pipit, LBB Gull (ad and first winter) and female Pheasant, plus 2 Teal over north.

This morning, 0730 - 0830, same circuit.
Skein of Pinkfeet over due east included a smaller bird, most probably a Barnacle but can't be sure. Consequently I didn't pay much attention to numbers but a quick estimate of 170 - 180 ish.
Lots of Blackbirds in this morning feeding energetically on the hawthorn and Rowan berries.
2 LBB Gulls on the sports field, Reed Bunting calling nearby.

Bit of a flying visit back to my old patch for a few days before heading back to N Wales. Yesterday dawned really nice, and for once I saw it, thanks to a handy 4 hour jet lag. A fox was in the field behind the house, nice start.
Walked along Brooks Drive, and through the fields to Bowdon Rugby Club and back from 8 - 10 a.m.
It was one of those late autumn mornings where birds were on the move, some clear skies in some places overnight but also scattered showers to bring things down. And the forecast was for it to deteriorate. I bet the vis miggers on both sides of the Pennines had a good morning.
41 species in total, including Fieldfare, Reed Bunting, Skylark, Grey Wag, Siskin, 3 Redpolll sp., Chiffchaff, Linnet, Stock Dove.

Today 7 - 8.30 a.m., much fewer birds, both species and overall numbers but new sp were Bullfinch over calling, a Brambling, and G S Woodpecker

A Pheasant called three times (quite separately) very early morning from the Fairywell Wood area. It seemed to be getting further away, prob moving south down the stream away from potential disturbance. Think it might be my first in Timps... not sure how often Henerz got them just across the fields towards Davenport Green.

Roughly 100 Pinkfeet flew north over Whitebeam Close, Timperley 2.50 pm. They were the lowest and possibly most vocal i've ever had, calling excitedly and flying somewhat erratically and gave the impression that they were moving locally rather than say between Norfolk and the Lancs mosses.
