Wednesday 4th August 2010 - Shenstone & Upton Warren

Popped around Shenstone late morning, just after the showers. There was no sign of any passage migrants.

2 Common Buzzards (1 adult & 1 juvenile) were seen in coniferous trees at the rear of Stone Manor's grounds. Another adult Buzzard was along Stanklyn Lane. c40 House Martins & 7 Swallows were seen over Witch Lane. A juvenile Pied Wagtail and 3 Common Whitethroats (1 adult & 2 juveniles) were also seen along the Lane.

In the afternoon my wife and I had to pop to Hanbury near Bromsgrove, so on the way back we dropped in to the Moors Pool at Upton Warren for an hour. Things were relatively quiet here with highlights being 1 Green Sandpiper, 52 Lapwing, 4 Common Terns, 1 Kingfisher and an eclipse drake Gadwall.
