This afternoon, after a visit to a rather dead Shenstone (it was so dead in fact I think avian rigor mortis had set in!), me and the other half decided to Grimley new workings.
At the Camp Lane gravel pits (Grimley New Workings) we saw 2 Greenshank, 3 Little Egret & 10 Common Snipe. The variety of wildfowl is also starting to increase and as well as the usual Mallards, Tufted Ducks & Gadwalls, we saw 4 Teal and 3 Shoveller. The highlight of the visit was a Hobby that flew over heading SSE. 3 Chiffchaffs were seen around the Causeway.
A flock of c80 Linnets were seen from the track next to Top Barn Farm Shop.
