West of GM in Warrington, going from around 2018 seeing birds a few times a year (typically around Victoria Park, Walton Hall, Appleton Reservoirs) I am now seeing birds weekly in North Appleton (13 being the highest single group in an Orchard) / along the Bridgewater Canal to Lymm, Walton Hall Gardens and there were even groups down at Moore Nature reserve for a couple of weeks in Spring.

At 08.10 this morning a flock or chatter flew over me whilst I worked in Heaton Moor Stockport 30c heading towards Heaton Mersey Common. What a fabulous sight as they were in a tight formation as though on a mission, the wonders of nature.

Family of two adults and three young Ring-necked Parakeets flying around Liverpool Street in Salford. Repeated sightings each day for the past week. They favour the trees next to the Windsor way opposite Arnold clarks showrooms and along the rail track behind Hope Street but can be seen flying as far down as Oldfield road.

Nipped round to my brothers with Lucas early evening and 10 Parakeets came flying over the car as I was nearing his house. He made me laugh when he opened the door, he said .. aww youve just missed my 10 Parakeets on the feeders.

Four Rose-ringed Parakeets in the dip at Elton Reservoir this morning. Seem to have been around for a few days this week. Up until now we only had the occasional one fly through. Not always easy to locate in the trees, but managed a record shot of one of them.

One visited our Marple garden this morning. Spend a few minutes in the cherry tree picking off the blossom one by one. The tried our squirrel-proof feeder but it was too heavy for that. (it is one where anything too heavy will close the shutters. Remarkably effective against squirrels.  Blackbirds can use it but apparently this parrot is quite a bit heavier.) Tried for a a minute to get in and then flew off towards Marple Hall. Not sure whether to be sad or happy.

A pair were inspecting the Telecoms tower on Romiley station car park at length this afternoon, so if the Internet goes down tonight, I'll know what's to blame.
