Birds in Manchester Springtime

Have seen a much larger selection of birds in Manchester this Spring than I ever remember seeing before. Possibly to do with now living nearer to trees but possibly not, as the more interesting ones (the wagtail and chaffinches) were spotted near a dirty bit of the Medlock and a carpark behind the Palace hotel in town!
