Monday 6th September 2010 - Shenstone
After yesterday's excitement, things have gone a bit flat again. The high point today was a lone Cormorant that flew over Heath Lane heading South East, a fairly uncommon sighting over Shenstone. Also of note along Heath Lane were a covey of 7 Red-legged Partridge, a juvenile Kestrel and 'Gammy' the Common Buzzard lying on top of a Hay Bale. If you are wondering why I have named this bird 'Gammy', well its because its got a gammy bowed leg so instead of perching it tends to lye down where ever possible. The bird itself seems to be coping ok and it is now the second year that this Buzzard has been kicking (or is that limping) around the local area. 8 Swallows were present along Butts Lane.
