        Nice record. Can you give us a six-figure for that please?

            We have two pairs of mistle thrush that regularly breed around Crosshill Park/Crematorium area in the large parkland trees. It is not uncommon post fledging to see 8-12 birds feeding or being fed.

                Keep send them in please Eddy. We need more records full stop, particularly of red-listers like this.

                Have two pairs nested successfully there this year?

                Cheers,
                Dan.

                  Yes Dan, max count a week ago I think was two families on the field while I was cutting. 5 and 6 birds with adults still feeding young on the ground. I did not regard this as unusual. It’s pretty much the norm at Torrisholme CC over the last 25 years.

                    If it’s of interest, Tarnbrook Fell yesterday, 3 may have been 4 at SD592 567.
