2 x Spotted Flycatcher together this p.m in the Island pool vicinity of Dunham Park. Several Treecreeper and feeding their young is always a joy to watch. Greylag Geese in the Bollin field. A Tufted duck (f) nest sitting at the Oxbow lake with the male on guard duty 1m away. Meanwhile, on the central pool the female Mute Swan is clearly in the maternity ward as there were 2 tiny cygnets; not sure if the male was banished or even aware as he was way over on the other side of the pool. No sign of any of the Woodpecker species.

A walk around the park and canal this morning. 5 Greylag in the Bollin flood meadow and up to 9 Stock Doves around the park. Best of all though was a very scruffy looking Red Kite flying over the Water Treatment works and then drifting over Dunham Woodhouse. A first GM record for me.

A pair of Willow Tits gave reasonable views today despite being very active and mobile, near the River Bollin to the south of Dunham Park. They were on the south side of the river after crossing the footbridge towards the Swan With 2 Nicks.
Also heard then seen briefly 2 days ago, when i couldn't quite believe my luck!

1 x Spotted Flycatcher in the same place. A surprising number of other species considering the 30c heat this p.m. The nest in the middle of Smithy Pool that had 3 eggs being turned by the Little Grebe only five days ago has not survived.

Two red kites from pull in just before junction of Carr Green Lane/Gorsey Lane with Dunham Road. One flew in direction of Dunham, the other  towards Warrington. I think this is just inside the county boundary, but apologies if it isn't.
