Monday April 10th

Kingsbury WP
Three Yellow Wagtails on the meadow by Church. 500 Sand Martins and 20 Swallows at Hemlingford.

Ladywalk NR
Four Black-tailed Godwits flew over seemingly without pausing (J&J Morris). Still a Common Snipe present.

Middleton RSPB
Staffs: The above group of four Black-tailed Godwits were seen at Jubilee Wetlands later (Mark Priest).

Shustoke Res
Six Common Terns late afternoon (Kevin Whiston et al).

West Mids: Four Wheatears by the pylon on Wishaw Lane (Carl Hiles).

Wheatears are present in good numbers at present but as usual the best chance of finding a few is to aim for higher ground and check ploughed potato fields or set a side stubbly fields. The small paddocks and sheep pasture which circle Shustoke Res will also hold birds.
