Local birding - 2nd May 2010

These two photos are of a whitethroat at the local quarry,
it stayed in the same tree for about 5 minutes then it flew off. At the quarry i also saw 2 grey wagtails, 1 peregrine, 2 jay, 3 chiffchaff, little grebe, 2 swallow and 3 swift.

This is a grey wagtail which i saw at stags lodge, at stags lodge i also saw 1 whitethroat, 1 blackcap, chiffchaff and i heard a willow warbler.


That night i went to brockholes quarry and headed to the top of the site and saw 3 wheatear, swallows and a few swift. When i went to start the whimbrel count but before they started comeing in i saw 2 common sandpiper, little ringed plover and redshank. The total whimbrel i saw was 264.
