Birds seen and heard 11/1/13

In December we moved from the South West side of Manchester to the South East. Our old place was in gardens surrounded by a number a huge old trees which made a great habitat for various types of bird. Our new flat is much more urban but there is a really splendid park nearby; Birchfields Park which dates back to the 1880s so I been heading there a few times a week to carry on my work with drawing bird sound.
