Autumn Sunshine in Timperley

The Bridgewater Canal, with Marsland Bridge, on 9 November 2009Well, after many overcast days, we at last enjoyed wall to wall sunshine today.

Shame it was an ‘admin’ day.

I love autumn. We've been enjoying some exceptionally crisp days, with clear blue skies, for the last few days, including Sunday when the boys and I enjoyed a lovely walk on frozen ground.
Today, I'm going to climb a mountain of ironing, because it's stair rods outside and I'm not going out to play, no way!

Those geese seem to have turned up every year for the last several years. I see them from the Met sometimes when going to town, more often I see them between Brooklands and Sale on the opposite side to the moorings. On Monday morning I was looking out of the Met window and the canal was dead calm and the autmunal trees were reflecting in it. :-)

I hope you got through that ironing, Louise!

TB, the Canada Geese live in the area between Brooklands and Sale - all year round, but they sometimes venture down to the rowing club or beyond (the picture was taken by the miniature railway track) for extra food. There's often a heron to be seen here, and swans, but I've not seen any kingfishers this side of Lymm.

I was wondering wether that was the case with the Canada Geese as the ones on the Rochdale Canal seem to be there all year too. A few people who I've spoken to when walking down at the Bollin have said that there is a Kingfisher on the Bollin on the stretch where it goes under the canal at Dunham. Good excuse for a lazy walk with the camera one frosty morning me thinks!

It wouldn't surprise me at all if kingfishers lived there. I'll keep an eye out for them. I've also seen great spotted woodpeckers where the Bollin goes under the disused railway.
Lots of goldfinches around there,(and by the canal) as well.
