Someone the other day mentioned that, they believed Thrushes were becoming a rare sighting. I did mention, they do frequent Hulme Park and sometimes my garden, to feed on the berries. Though it had not happened this year, for some reason. Later that day, as I approached my front gate, I was delighted to see a Thrush, fly out of my bushes. Despite the constant war waged against nature by Manchester City Council and property developers. It is nice to see we have a diverse range of birds, are still making a home in Manchester. Below, There also photographs of the Ancoats Kestrel and Canada Geese with their Goslings by the Ashton Canal.
A Thrush, but whether it is a Mistle Thrush or a Song Thrush, I cannot tell the difference. Any help in identifying them probably would be appreciated, though I think, it is the more common Mistle Thrush.
Hunting for its dinner. It can be seen frequently around Ancoats Dispensary hovering for its food. Our local family of Crows are not too happy about it being in the area. Then we have the Canadian Geese with their Goslings at different stages wondering about and foraging.
