3 Wheatears (2♂) still present in paddocks along Stanklyn Lane this morning. Also seen along Stanklyn were 2 Common Whitethroat, a ♂ Blackcap, 1 Pied Wagtail, 2 Common Buzzard and a flock of 40+ Starling. Singing in the area were Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Skylark, Linnet and Yellowhammer.

4 Curlew seen flying over Heath Lane towards Stone. 2 Common Whitethroats singing in hedge row near model aircraft field. A Common Buzzard and a Brown Hare were seen in the field opposite the Islamic School.

On returning to Shenstone this evening, 2 Wheatears were still showing on Stanklyn Lane, a Fox was seen crossing Back Lane and a Little Owl was seen perched in a tree on Heath Lane. This is the first sighting of Little Owl I have had in the area since August 2009, when the resident pair disappeared from Stanklyn Lane.
