Chipping Sodbury Common

A Glorious sunny day spent on the Common, mainly to see the Juv. Woodchat Shrike, but impressed by the number and variety of other birds- flock 50+ Goldfinches, uncountable number of Whinchats, Stonechat, Wheatear, Skylarks, Redstarts, Spotted Flycatchers and numerous Chiffchaffs/Willow Warblers in the hedges & trees surounding the Common.

Just an hour & half from Brum, will definately be back again.

PS Forgot the Lesser Whitethoat!

Sounds like a very good day. I had the pleasure of watching my first Woodchat Shrike on Sunday morning on the Gower.

I was there yesterday morning too, and also mightily impressed with the place! I can add 2 Tree Pipits to your list. A decent visit to Ham Wall/Shapwick Heath area afterwards was paid off with Pec Sand, Glossy Ibis, Osprey, GWE's etc
