Nice to bump into a spotted flycatcher at Rye Bank Fields this afternoon, hawking from a dead stick in sycamores by the jays' favourite oak trees at the Rye Bank Road end.

It's been a while since I've been here, I've sort of avoided Longford Park for a while 'cos I get cross about what Trafford Council did to the hall. I remember Rye Bank as two big mowed fields, it's become really interestingly overgrown.

No luck with migrants on a lunchtime visit but a very nice mixed tit flock worked its way through the sallows at the Rye Bank Road end. Definitely worth a repeat visit or three.
