Wednesday 24th August 2010 - Shenstone

Another day and more wet weather...but I'm not a person to be deterred by such things as a bit of rain! In fact I even dragged a fellow local birder (TS) around for a good soaking whilst I was at it! No fair-weather birding here!

No sign of Yellow-legged Gull at Heath Lane today but a mixed flock of c.140 Herring & Lesser Black-backed Gulls were still present in the field opposite the Islamic School. Also in the same field were c.100 Starlings, 9 Mistle Thrushes, 13 Canada Geese and a Common Buzzard.

The Wagtail passage continues on the south side of the patch, with the spent broad bean field along Witch Lane containing 15 Yellow Wagtails and c.20 Pied Wagtails. Also seen in the bean field were 2 Skylarks. A Kestrel and a Sparrowhawk flew over.
