Having failed to see a Grey Partridge locally last year. I made a more determined effort this year. Having already scoured local fields of winter wheat with no success it was time to get serious and check out the Wishaw area on the boundary between Warwickshire and the West Mids. Finding the birds was easier than expected. They were paired off and 3 pairs were seen 2 pairs in the wheat and one pair in a stubble field.
A pair of Grey Patridge
At Ladywalk N.R. the first singing Song thrush was seen and at the Sewage outfall at Hams Hall there were 3 Chiffchaff.
