Pennignton Flash - The Usual Fair

Another good mix of birds from Pennington Flash. Nothing unusual this time, just a good variety.
Great Crested Grebes have been quite numerous on the main Flash. With some fast developing juveniles around too, it seems to have been a good year for them, or maybe its just an average year and I have noticed too much before. Either way they are always nice to watch.


Greenfinch have been in good numbers too, and this is something I've noticed in other parts of Manchester and Cheshire too. This is good, as some years back they were quite hard to come by.

A Jay came down to greet me as I parked the car. They'll be getting busy soon to stash food for the winter.

  14. I love the colouring of both the Jay and the Lapwing.
    Will these birds migrate come Autumn?
    You're so lucky living in an area with many species - I would love that.

  15. Nice pictures - I was surprised at how many GCG's I saw when I was back in the UK - they must be doing better than 20 years ago. Well, I hope so.
