Billinge Area

There were very few birds around this afternoon probably due to the wind, but I was pleased to see little owls at both of the known sites in Billinge. The flock of mistle thrush was the biggest I've ever seen. They were in the field west of Red Barn Farm.

  1. Seems to be planty of Mistle Thrush around at the moment. A flock of similar size to the one you saw has been seen regularly at Three Sisters / Viridor Wood area.(Ashton in Makerfield)
    Two Tawnies are seen frequently at Three Sisters along with this years young.
