On Hardy Farm, 1315, a flock of 30+ lesser redpolls were feeding on the small trees between the path to Jackson's Boat and the tram lines before flying off. I bumped into them again feeding on the birches between the tram bridge and golf course ten minutes later and they flew on over to Sale Golf Course.

Dusk this evening;
Buzzard (1) over
Tawny Owl calling
Woodcock (1) flew out the old cow field - great view against the night sky
Alongside the normal show of Jackdaws going to roost there seems to be a growing roost of Crows in the woods (compared to recent years). Giving the Buzzard and Owl a hard time
