Rindle Road, Rindle Wood and Astley Moss SSSI

Tonight, between 4:30 and 6pm on a very pleasant walk with my other half round Rindle Road, Rindle Wood and the trail around the edge of the SSSI, produced:
  • Male and Female Pheasant on Rindle Road near Nook Lane
  • 2 Tree Sparrows in f67
  • 2 Yellowhammers in f67
  • 1 Chaffinch in hawthorne along road
  • Buzzard over the trees near the railway line
  • Several Lapwing displaying in f67/68
  • Many Carrion Crows and Wood Pigeons in f69
  • 2 Kestrels (1 over Astley Moss and the other over f67)
  • 2 Mallards in pools
  • 3 Blue Tits in Wood
  • 1 Great Tit in Wood 
  • 1 Wren in Wood
  • 4 Wheatear in the ploughed field between the SSSI pools and Rindle Hedge (year tick)
  • 1 Yellowhammer and a Pied Wagtail in same ploughed field
  • 2 Mistle Thrushes and 2 Grey Partridges in f69
  • Several Crows, Magpies and Blackbirds around
  • Several other unidentified LBJ's (moved too fast for us)
On leaving the 'Moth Man' (whose name I'm afraid I don't know even though I've met him many times) said there had been a Corn Bunting on the wires near Rindle Cottages earlier in the week.
