    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.
