Canton Common Ditch

The ditches alongside Leckwith Road have been “home” to Moorhens for several years! They have even bred there too. In addition it is a site where Reed Warblers briefly stop off on Spring passage. This falls inside my BBS site. During winter two or three Moorhens often venture onto the grass verges of Leckwith Rd as well! Glad to note that you’ve seen them there today!


Cetti’s Warbler as usual in Grangemoor Park; one further up-river towards Canton/Leckwith.
Whitethroat calling, Grangemooor Park; two Greenfinch singing.
Sanatorium Park- male Stonechat for the second time in four days (unusual in this locality).
