Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 The small quarry is not used and has lots of growth around it so Robin, Wren, Black­bird, Song Thrush and Dun­nock should be seen.

2 Fol­low the track along the edge of the hill and check for Meadow Pipit and pos­si­ble Tree Pipit on the wood­land edge. Watch for Sparrowhawk and hov­er­ing Kestrel. Win­ter vis­i­tors to the area such as Red­wing and Field­fare are abun­dant. Sum­mer sees Wheatear, Whin­chat and Red­start around. In late sum­mer, Ring Ouzel are recorded in nearby Long Mynd and Stiper­stones, so keep a look­out.

3 At the top check for the Red Kite, Buz­zard, Raven and Car­rion Crow. In sum­mer Swifts and Swal­lows dash around.

4 Down to the stream, a bit of wood­land and an open field with hedges so search for a pos­si­ble Dip­per, all six tits, Yellowhammer, Green­finch, Woodpigeon and pos­si­ble Stock Dove. Win­ter finch flocks are likely with Siskin and red­poll pos­si­ble.
