A few highlights from a couple of hours spent on the local patch. Seems like a long time ago when up to 400 Pochard descended on Chorlton Water Park during the winter months. Unfortunately in recent years the numbers have fallen dramatically to circa 50. It does however make finding the occasional Scaup far easier.
Male Bullfinch across the river in Kenworthy Wood enjoying the rapidly swelling buds on the Blackthorn and Willow. Great to see a family party of 7 birds feeding together.
A few more signs of life with fresh Turkeytail fungi and Jelly Ear appearing and Blackthorn and Gorse coming into flower.
