Tuesday 24th August 2010 - Shenstone & Grimley

An adult Yellow-legged Gull was again present this morning with a mixed flock of c.70 Herring Gulls and Lesser Black-backed Gulls in the field opposite the Islamic school. This time I managed to see the bird...which is great as it is a patch tick for me. Otherwise the patch was quite with little else to report.

From Shenstone, I decided to pop to Grimley Camp Lane Pits to see the 2 juvenile Knot that were found there yesterday by (TMH). The 2 Knot were still present and one of the birds had a really nice peach hue to its chest. Also of note were a Greenshank, 1 Green Sandpiper, 1 Common Snipe, 1 Little Ringed Plover, 3 Little Egrets and 8 Common Terns.
