keep yours eyes and ears open......
This morning at 9.30 as I turned the corner to walk towards town from crowther road I heard a shriek and looked up to see the pair of Rose-ringed parakeets (also known as ring-necked) flying from the direction of west park. they flew overhead and over the crowther road allotments towards newbridge wood. Could not tell if they landed there or carried on, but certainly there are trees there which would be similar to the plain trees they favour in the park.
Otherwise little to report, 2 coot and 2 little grebe on canal near water bridge. 30+greenfinch at the stadium is good these days and alongside about a dozen at wildside, but still no siskin/redpoll .
