I wasn't planning any birding today as it was my wife's day off. Early afternoon we decided to pop to a garden centre near Chaddesley Corbett for lunch. As we were heading home I suggested nipping just up the road (literally) to Tanwood.....it's funny how a pair of binoculars can find their way into one's car.
Stopping of at Tanwood I scanned across the fields and picked up a ♀ Wheatear sitting on the fence post...result. We decided then to do a short butterfly walk but there was little about other than Small White, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown and a single
♂Common Blue. Still, not bad for an impromptu visit.
