There was a large movement of Redwings yesterday morning over Bredbury.
They passed over in large groups over a period of around an hour between 9am - 10am, coming from a North Easterly direction.

Steve.

Possibly worth checking Reddish Vale ponds near the visitor centre early morning, it has roosted there before now.

A Harris Hawk has just been trying to shelter in a fir tree in my garden whilst being mobbed by the local Magpies and crow's. It eventually flew off towards Woodley.

A quick look along the footpath that runs down by Bredbury Parkway.

Whitethroats 6
Blackcaps 4
Chiffchaffs 5
Bullfinches 2
Song Thrushes 2

All the above in song

This area still has nice mature hedgerows with scattered hawthorns and clumps of brambles in the fields, a magnet for warblers. Not out today at the optimum time of day but nevertheless the following were singing.

Whitethroat 8
Blackcap 5
Chiffchaff 6
(In previous years I have also seen Lesser Whitethroat and Grasshopper/Sedge/Garden Warbler, whilst Mr Adderley once found a Tree Pipit so always worth a look)

Swift 8
Swallow 5
House Martin 2 (Attending one of the 2 nests remaining under eaves at the Arden Arms)

Cheers John

In addition to the 4 Waxwing on Ashton Road were 3 Fieldfare,  10 Redwing, Sparrowhawk and predumed Chiffchaff although it followed the large Goldfinch flock before I could get absolute ID confirmed.
