Tuesday 6th September 2011 - Shenstone

I only had time for an hour or so on the patch today so the first thing I did was head over to Butts Lane to see if the Black Redstart was present.  It was indeed and showed well for a 10 minute period. This is now the 4th day that this juvenile bird has been present!  Just after I had finished at Eastfields Farm I had a Hobby fly over the mixed crop field opposite.

As I headed towards Stanklyn Lane a Stoat ran across Butts Lane carrying a small rodent in its mouth.

All that was of note at Stanklyn Lane paddocks was 3 Pied Wagtails.


  1. I take it you`ve not had enough of the Redstart yet, Jason ;-)

  2. C'mon, Jase, thats enough, send the Black -red round a bit now :-)

  3. Ha...I don't like to be selfish guys but I think I will keep it on my patch a little longer!
