Chelmarsh - Rock Pipit :-)

Martyn Owen and Chelmarsh continue to deliver the goods and news of a late afternoon 'find' saw me dashing straight from work for a really difficult inland bird - Rock Pipit no less and hoping it would stick?

It did but sadly not for long! I got there just before 6.00 and located it on the dam wall with Rob / Ann Stokes the only other birders able to make it before .... at 6.10 the Pied Wagtails with which it was associating, decided to fly off! It tagged along sadly, flying South and didn't appear to be looking back.....

Nevertheless I'd managed a couple of (strictly) record shots and yet another Shropshire lifer!!

Erm, how about a Water Pipit next week please Martyn? I sense a Diver or two this Winter or maybe a long overdue Slav as well the way Chel is performing? We shall see....

Day ONE from Norfolk pics are now uploaded down below too - keep checking back - theres a few days work there :-)
