Mr Monkey examined a display about the importance of trees in urban gardening, marvelling at the range of types of apple he'd never heard of. Then he arrived at the urban wildlife section of the exhibition and read about urban birdlife. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds are quite pleased about there being peregines and black redstarts in Manchester.
At the RSPB website you can read about peregrines in Manchester and the Black Redstart.
