Bird news

Its a beautiful day here on Wenlock Edge today, save for the odd shower which fortunately move through quite quickly, being replaced by blue skies, warm sunshine and bird song.
There was plenty of action on the feeders at the bird hide this morning and the breeding season is now under way. I managed to get a few photos too, which was a bonus.

Great Spotted Woodpecker
Migrant species now being heard here include, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler and Blackcap and i have just been told that Whitethroat have arrived in Shropshire so they should now be on site too. Chiffchaff can be heard everywhere, but to hear Willow Warbler, Blackcap and Whitethroat you need to look in scrubby areas such as the National Trust car park near Much Wenlock.

  1. Lovely pics! We are building a small hide at Attingham too, so hopefully we will get some good photo opportunities soon.
