Friday May 7th 2010, Shenstone & Wyre Forest (at dusk)

There are now 5 Wheatears in/on the bank behind the paddocks along Stanklyn lane this afternoon. The 3 birds (2♂ & 1♀) that have been present for a number of days now have been joined by 2 new birds (1♂ & 1♀).

A Hare was again present in the large cereal field on Heath Lane. The only butterfly I saw on the wing this afternoon was a ♂ Orange Tip along Heath Lane.

Shortly before dusk, myself, Tony Smith and Brian Rickett went to the Wyre Forest to try and catch up with roding Woodcock. On arrival at the clearing above the disused railway line, there were a number of Willow Warblers and 2 Tree Pipits singing. As dusk approached, and all but the Robins were singing, we had 2 Woodcock roding in the area. As the light fell a Tawny Owl was heard calling.
