After visiting Sudley House today I was walking down North Mossley Hill road today around 3:30pm and heard a small mixed flock calling away at the entrance to the Halls of Residence just before Rose Lane, I was delighted to find a (female?) Firecrest accompanied by at least 3 Goldcrests, Treecreeper, and plenty of mixed Tit species. The sighting was brief but 100% and my first in the area for about ten years (Calderstones Park), the flock could be easily located by the amount of calling birds including the Firecrest, I viewed the flock for around five minutes before leaving them in the same area (and of course their was no trespassing on the university grounds......heaven forbid).
Apart from this sighting Redwings, Nuthatch, and Sparrowhawk in Sudley House along with a clump of flowering escaped Japanese Anenome near to Mossley Hill church. In Greenbank Park the Parakeets are still in attendance, coupled with a pair of Tufted Ducks, Nuthatch, Great Spotted Woodpecker, and a Tawny Owl on Greenbank Lane yesterday evening and two Foxes, also in the park a couple of flowering Daffodils and a clump of flowering Snowdrop on Gorsebank Road....... am I missing something?!!!
