Belting last two evenings on a dog walk along the loop path near Highfield CP, Levenshulme.

Sun 4th Sep.
- Sparrowhawk flew low and close to me through the woods putting up Woodpigeons, Blackbirds, a Robin, and a small party of Long-tailed Tits. I could hear House Martins overhead so they could well have seen it too.

Mon 5th Sep.
- Hobby large as life flew right over me near the Z bends at Longford Rd and Nelstrop Rd North. Mustve flown over secret lake and was heading towards Highfield CP and the A6.
- 14 House Martins were whizzing round close by, they seem to have done well breeding near the chimney tower on Sandfold Lane near secret lake.
