    Sandwell Valley 30/04/2016 My 1st ever visit to the RSPB reserve today. In addition to the Common Scoter on the lake, there was a Lesser Redpoll visiting the feeding station which I thought was a bit late. Matt

    Hi Phil, Yes I organised the Warks all-dayer. Date chosen was the one that the majority of participants could do. We're hoping to do another next spring, and a few of us might do it again this autumn... Matt

    Rare and Scarce Birds in Warwickshire

    Yes Phil, "XNDJ". Seen last year at Shawell in Leics - http://bagawildone.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/another-colour-ringed-caspian-gull-at.html It looks more like a Caspian in those photos than mine, but definitely the same bird! Still has a limp.

    Hi all, A flock of 40+ Meadow Pipits were reported perched in trees on my local patch recently by an observer who also got some shots (below). They don't give me the impression of being pipits (especially the 2nd shot), so would appreciate others' thoughts on the pics please. Kind regards, Matt

    Bittell Reservoirs and Hopwood area

    Bittell spring all-dayer? I'm hoping to organise an all-dayer at Earlswood in the spring next year, and wonder whether the Bittell regulars would be interested in doing one on the same day, as a little friendly competition to make it even more interesting? It wouldn't necessarily have to be on...

    Birding In Staffordshire

    Thanks Ian, yes I've seen that article and found it really useful as a starting point, though it doesn't go into the level of detail I need. I find those "Birds of..." articles in general really interesting and it's a shame the bird club stopped publishing them in their Reports. Have you also...
