2 buzzards again this month, but this time at Birchwood.

Lots of swifts (all commoncry.gif)

pair of swallows casing the local shopping precinct while they choose which burglar alarm they'll nest on this year

Chiff-chaff and all the usual assorted gulls,doves, tits, corvids etc. as well as that well-known denizen of suburban rooftops, the grey heron. An immature, from his less-than impressive balancing on the ridge tiles!

Monthly visit to family

No sign yet of any real summer visitors, but lots of singing males and birds paired up-even the visiting lesser black-backs were flying round in pairs.
2's ( or multiples thereof) of the following:
Blue Tit
Great Tit
Mistle Thrush
Carrion Crow
Collared Dove
Wood Pigeon
House Sparrow
and the aforementioned Gulls

Singles of:
Coal Tit
Robin. A pair were seen courtship-feeding earlier in the year so this was probably the non-
sitting one of another pair

2 good garden ticks
a pair of buzzards (so not just the Manc. birds enjoying the therms)
peregrine (which flew across while we were watching the buzzards!)

Also seen: Blackcap male in silver birches at Maghull station p.m.
Song Thrush with food in bushes at Kirkdale station a.m.

En route between Glazebrook & Birchwood
pair of phesants
20 lesser black-backed gulls
3 carrion crows
1 kestrel
1 blue tit
6/7 house sparrows
several magpie, wood pigeons etc.
