River Ribble - Marles Wood to Dinckley Hall and Hurst Green

I went for walk along a short stretch of the River Ribble with two work colleagues today and this produced the follwoing birds:
  • Female Goosander with seven young in tow
  • 2 Dippers near the bridge
  • Female Mallard with about ten ducklings
  • Two drake Mallards
  • Lots of swallows over the fields
  • Curlew calling
  • Chaffinch and Chiffchaff singing loudly in the woods near Stonyhust College
  • Lots of unidentified warblers - still learning the calls
  • Grey Heron over the river on the way home
I wrote the original report of these sightings on the Manchester Birding Forum
