Titterstone Clee - what the **** APRIL 1st Post!!

Unbelievable - I never ever would have thought it !! Having nailed Great Grey Shrike and Ring Ouzel on the Shropshire heights, I was hoping for something special today!

The weather was holding as I got to the summit and lo and behold a male Snow Bunting - storming bird too going into Summer plumage..

The weather in Scotland is vile, spare a though for the folks up there.... and of course the birds!! Many reports of Ptarmigan flying south and with hopes high I couldn't believe my luck - just below the trig point....

Could Shropshire birding ever get any better, I'm still pinching myself - an amazing start to the month of April!!
