4 Redwing over. the garden this morning, and a small movement of Meadow Pipit.

A lone lark sp flew west over the garden low mid-afternoon, presumably a Skylark but it was low and looked small - guess it was just a small low Skylark!

Wow that's a fantastic sighting. I'd love to know, was it in a private garden? Or the hedges round Pickering Lodge perhaps?
Cheers.

Hi Maka. My local Tawnies have gone strangely quite just down the road from you in Hale Barns. Not heard a peep from them in 2010. Not sure why but this cold might have something to do with it.



Henry perhaps it is because all territories have been claimed and mates selected.

About 2:30 a male merlin hurtled over the garden haeding roughly in Henry's direction - my first for the garden and means I now have all 4 UK falcons on the garden list, but still rarely see a House Sparrow despite a colony 3 doors away....

Henry - It's pure white with paler legs than normal. Very distinctive especially when it flies as it's wings are completely bright white - just like an adult Med Gull.

Possibly the bird which roosted at Rostherne during the cold snap Steven. Was it just partially white or white all over apart from the bill and legs?

1 Leucistic BH Gull with normal BH Gulls and a few Common Gulls in the grounds of Altrincham College of Arts at 11.45am today. I initially saw it flying round and thought it was a Med Gull until it landed. The bird is bright white - much whiter than the normal BH's with pure white wings. It also has paler legs than usual.
