The rest of the week

Wednesday – Shustoke the Common Sandpiper was still present, along with the Scaup and the Red-crested Pochard – new for the year was a Woodcock. On the whole, not as good as yesterday but still not bad.

Thursday – spend the day at Middleton Lakes, highlights were c.350 Golden Plover, Green Sandpiper, 8 Shelduck, Water Rail several Stonechat and a good supporting cast of commoner birds.

Friday – Joy and I were up early and 10 minutes after dawn we started the Malvern Ridge a Castlemorton Common nearly three hours later we saw the Snow Bunting again at Worcestershire Beacon also seen were a few Stonechat, Raven, Bullfinch, 20+ Meadow Pipit and a first – a Mistle Thrush feeding on Mistletoe Berries!

Sitting at home knackered after a near 15 mile ridge walk!
