There has been a dearth of Willow Tits on Chorlton Ees this year with only the odd sightings reported. I am not aware of any breeding pairs this year which is tragic.

So it was good to hear one calling this afternoon on Hardy Farm (on the training pitch side of ye path that runs from Brookburn Road to Jacksons Boat) ..

One of the four Teal was looking a bit lethargic early last week, so kept a check on it. Looked fine later, and now the four have moved to the Sale side. Otherwise, two, probably three Water Rail at Meadow Pond, also two Willow Tit here (one unusually vocal), with possibly an extra bird at the old sludge beds. Casual wanders gave up to seven Goldcrest, half a dozen Bullfinch, male Stonechat, an influx of Siskin which now seem to have moved on, a dozen Redpoll (now moved to the Sale side), a couple of Reed Bunting etc.
