Black Hill - Tree Pipit etc

There were one or two Shropshire Summer visitors I missed whilst in New England and a trip to the South of the County would hopefully be worthwhile?

A walk on Black Hill was the main destination but Wood Warbler obliged at Clunton Coppice. Easy to hear on the valley side of the road but difficult to photograph and this 'into the light'  effort was the only keeper from a couple of hours trying!

There has been a lot of Tree clearing here - be prepared for the new 'open plan' hillside above the car park and even a  slice of the deciduous woodland near here has gone!

A pair of Tree Pipits on Black Hill were at least more obliging....

Plus plenty more birds! Nothing exciting but including a couple of Red Kites, Garden Warbler, Blackcap, Willow Warbler, Whitethroat, Yellowhammer plus the ever present Goldcrest....

Oops, forgot to mention! There were large numbers of Beautiful Demoiselle near the car park at Clunton Coppice, I'll post them separately :-)
