Thanks to the great information contained in posts on here, my wife and I visited KG V pool for the first time this morning (I've only lived in Sale for 57 years!). Many thanks everyone who has given details of this location to date
Conditions under foot were dire, the path around the pool was a quagmire, but we saw:-

10.50 - 12.00
1 Kingfisher, showing very well
3 Mute Swans, (2 ad, 1 Juv)
6 Canada Geece
21 Mallard
2 "odd ducks" poss Aylesbury/Mallard cross?
3 Tufted Duck
2 Nuthatches
2 Moorhen
1 Coot
1 Treecreeper
1 Redwing
6 Siskins
2 Goldfinches plus others heard
3 Long Tailed Tits
3 Robins (2 displaying)
1 Grey Wagtail on adjacent brook
1 Sparrowhawk on ground, disturbed by our approach & sent crashing after prey through bushes behind houses on Birchlea

Excellent - we'll be back!

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.

The Leucistic Black-headed Gull was back again today at 12.50pm feeding with normal BH Gulls on Altrincham College of Arts sports field. I got closer views today. It has very light brown primaries that are hardly visible and completely white back. It has normal red legs and bill. It's amazing how the difference in colour seems to change the overall jizz of the bird. It seems almost pigeon-like in the way it struts around!

RE: Timperley


hi Walshy, Rob Hayden here, we had games of tennis years ago with James J and Martin Deakin. You new my daughters before that from nightclubs.
When I first saw Goosanders on pond a couple of years ago I was amazed, did not realise they would come to a pond like this one!
We are all still volunteering on Skomer.

I had one here in Nov 2009 seen on a couple of days. Also had a Med Gull in 2008.
This bird is completely white on the back with no black primaries at all. Couldn't make out leg and bill colour but I remember the 2009 bird had much paler legs and bill. I'll look out for it again next week.

Very interesting Steve, i've seen what must surely be the same bird in the large roost at Rostherne twice in the last 3 weeks. Not surprising really given the proximity, but i wonder where the Med Gulls which are seen there spend their day time - i've looked for them in big flocks of BHGs following ploughs in the area without success, so maybe they're just passing through. What else must pass though then.. Also saw the leucistic BHG last winter which suggests it's quite site faithful.

Edit: cross post with Henerz.

Interesting sighting Steve. A single leucistic bird has been regular at the Rostherne gull roost again this autumn, probably the same one.

22/08/2011 - Recieved a report of a probable Lesser Spotted Woodpecker heard calling in Fairywell Wood this afternoon. This isn't far, as the pecker flys, from the Wythenshawe/Northenden territory but it would be nice to think it is more locally resident in the Timperley/Hale Barns area.
