Sefton Park and Greenbank Park

In Sefton Park today the pair of Mute Swans were sitting on the nest on the island, with only two of the Little Grebes viewable but I couldnt see any nest as yet. Two Chiff Chaffs and a Blackcap in the park where the only incoming migrants and a Redwing an obvious outgoing migrant, two Nuthatches, two Pied Wagtails, and a Great Spotted Woodpecker and a Grey Heron perched in the dead Birch on the Island. Along Greenbank Lane a Ring Necked Parakeet was in Plane trees opposite Greenbank College, this is the area where I suspected them of breeding last year. In Greenbank Park the Mute Swan nest was minus yesterdays eggs and they could be seen mating; cant explain that one. Bluebells are emerging everywhere heralding spring, and Sefton Parks Daffodil displays are at their best.
A Peregrine was perched on the top of Garston gas works today at 3:00pm, and eight Farm Geese and a Grey Heron on the University playing fields on Mather Avenue.

Why does Sparrow Hall only come up in about three internet searches and for some reason you're one of them?
