The juvenile Black Redstart was again present at Eastfields Farm when I checked this morning. Also noted there were a Jay, a single Great Spotted Woodpecker, 2 Mistle Thrush and 2 Robins. There were 8 juvenile Pheasants near the now dried out drainage pond.
At Witch Lane there was a notable flock of 40+ Greenfinch present. I also recorded a Kestrel and 2 Common Buzzards. 18 Herring Gull and 3 Lesser Black-backed Gulls were in the recently scarified field. A flock of 10 Lapwing flew over Willow Marsh Fisheries. and c.30 House Martin were also over Witch Lane.
Also of note around the Shenstone area today were 4 Northern Wheatear. Two of which were at Witch Lane and one was seen in a stubble field along Stanklyn Lane. (Peter & Mia Lewis)
