Early evening, my wife (Bev), and I popped to Upton Warren to see the Long-eared Owl that was roosting at the edge of the Moors Pool reedbed. Great views were had (see below photo) and we were also treated to the 3 Greenshank that flew overhead calling loudly as they left the Moors.
Finally, on my way home, I popped into my local patch of shenstone...I couldnt let a day slip with out visiting. The Little Owl was still present along Heath Lane and a ♂ Wheatear was seen in Stanklyn Lane paddocks.
