Here's a new area I didn't even know existed: a ditch running parallel with the railway line, off Edgeley Road. Clear water vole activity, including some droppings which were (against the wisdom of the text books) pointy-ended. We're always told that means rat, but this was definitely w-v because of the size, colour, and siting in the open.
All the way along I was accompanied by this beautiful song thrush (or is it mistle?).
