Wednesday 26th May 2010, Shenstone & Holt/Grimley

A Garden Warbler was singing along Stanklyn Lane, as were 2 Common Whitethroats. 5 Mistle Thrushes (4 Juveniles) were in Heath Lane paddock. A Pied Wagtail was also present there.

After visiting Shenstone, I decided to pop to Holt & Grimley. The Pink-footed Goose was again at Holt Sling Pool. 8 Little Ringed Plovers (4 chicks) were at Wagon Wheel Lane Pits. 2 Common Tern were on the raft at Grimley Old workings Island Pool.

4 Common Tern were using the islands at Grimley New Workings. The Oystercatchers there were feeding two chicks on donut island and a Little Ringed Plover was present at the north end. I also saw a ♂ Common Blue butterfly along the causeway and a Stoat along path back to Camp Lane.
