    The Flashes this afternoon was very quiet! Only 5 BH Gull and 4 Moorhen, hardly any small birds on the way too and from the Avocet hide - eerily quiet! More on the sailing lake with GC Grebe, C Geese, Tufted Duck, Mallard and Cormorant. At the Moors were: Shelduck, L Egret, G Heron, Greylag...

    Hi Gert, This was reported by myself and my other half, it flew in onto one on the small islands and was present for less than 2 minutes before flying off SW. The bird was viewed from the Avocet hide. Nothing of note seen since.

    Pallid Harrier?, Norfolk

    Had brief views of this harrier at North Point, Wells-next-the-Sea early evening yesterday, we think it is a Pallid Harrier but would appreciate confirmation or otherwise!

    Birding in Worcestershire

    A 5 mile walk around the Wyre Forest today was fairly unproductive apart from a flyby Dipper, lots of Robins, Blue Tits, Coal Tits, flyover Siskin and a couple of Grey Wagtails. The only positive was that it didn’t rain! On the way home we decided to call at Blackstone, Bewdley and we’re so...

    A rather unseasonal last visit to Upton for us today, it felt more like Autumn than 31st December with the ‘warm’ temperatures and cloud bursts! From the Hobby hide we saw: water rail, reed bunting, gadwall, shoveler, mallard, sparrowhawk and moorhen. The feeder was busy with blue tits, great...

    An enjoyable visit to the reserve yesterday, quiet at the Flashes apart from Lapwing, 1 Green Sandpiper and 12 Curlew. The Bittern didn’t show at the Moors but it was nice to see everything else in some lovely Autumnal sunshine! Highlight bird for us was a Female Wheatear on Webbs car park...

    Dowles Brook, Wyre Forest

    An enjoyable day was had at Dowles Brook today. Lots of singing Blackcaps along the brook, Grey Wagtail, Kingfisher and Dipper also seen together with 4 pairs of Mandarin. Fascinating to watch the posturing between 2 pairs of Mandarin with the males making themselves look bigger by puffing out...

    Thank you for your reply Geoff! We viewed the Flashes from the public footpath yesterday and it was a bit of trek from the A38 side so I was just wondering if it would be closer (and with less stiles) from the other side of the footpath. We had distant views of Green Sandpiper, Common Sandpiper...

    Just wondering which is the preferable approach for the public footpath - from the A38 or from the south?

    Titterstone Clee

    As the weather forecast was for good weather we decided to have a trip over to Titterstone Clee Hill and it was worth it! Driving up to the summit we had Common Buzzard, Red Kite and a Male Stonechat. After we had parked up overlooking the old quarry workings the first bird we saw was a Black...
