And not far from Sylvan Ave to Smiths Fields, lots of short grass and tall trees. Could be a dispersing juv? My mates dad had one on his lawn on Bonville Chase, Altrincham one or two summers ago.
Great record if so. (Unless it's a Belted Kingfisher).

A Yellowhammer was heard calling in the tall hawthorn hedge adjacent to Whitebeam Close near to where it joins Fairywell Wood. Then seen close briefly as it flew, this is i think my first ever in Timperley in 35ish+ years of birdwatching. I'm not sure where the nearest regular birds are, but think they're relatively thin in the countryside to the south. The nearest birds might be - or at least used to be- along Sinderland Lane, Broadheath.

Getting occasional Owl calls on golf course this autumn and winter, up till about five years ago Tawny used to come to my garden and pond area regularly, at that time the hooting was so regular I assumed they were breeding on golf course!.

Hi Keith, that's a nice little area you look out on there. I used to have a look round it in my lunch breaks when I was working on Park Road near the canal. Glad to hear the nature reserve is still there, warblers inc. whitethroat in the summertime, and it would sometimes get quite a few Snipes in a cold spell. Keep us posted.

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.
