In the woods were Treecreepers, Nuthatches, Great Spotted Woodpeckers, the usual tits and finches, and in places a great carpet of Wood Anemones, plus the odd Bluebell.
The rest of the walk brought little more in the way of birds. We explored a small arboretum near the car park where there was rumoured to be a white (Grey) Squirrel but couldn't find it, and then it was into Northwich town just as the rain started, for a reviving cup of tea before back to Knutsford.
We stayed in for the afternoon, and the rain did eventually give way to sunshine, allowing for more garden bird photography. I'll put all the garden pics here, though they were taken across the whole five and a half days.
The little birds include Bullfinch and Nuthatch, as well as the expected range of tits, finches and assorted insect-eaters. All the food on offer inevitably also attracts a less desirable element...
