Common Redpolls in South Shropshire

One of the 20+Common Redpoll at Newcastle upon Clun with over 120 Lesser Redpoll and 100 Siskin.
  A visit to Newcastle upon Clun in South Shropshire last week produced lots of Marsh Tit, 100+Siskin, 130+Lesser Redpoll and over 20 Common Redpoll. Up to 3 Dipper were on the Folly Broke with Red Kite in the valley. Near Bridges up to Long Mynd, we flushed 40+Brambling feeding beneath the Beech Trees that borders the road.

Lots of Marsh Tit in the south of the county

Both Buzzard and Red Kite were all over the shop

Went to have a look at the 2 immature/female Scaup that have been present at Prisorlee Lake for the last few days
Juvenile Mute Swan

Nearby just down road from Prisorlee near Kynnersley, this Great-black backed Gull was getting stuck into this dead sheep

Tawny Owl

While were in the south of the county, we made a visit to Kington Owl Centre and as you can see we had an awesome time feeding and holding the owls. Here's me with a Giant Eagle Owl. 

All the owls loved being scrached behind the neck and if you stopped, then they would gently nip you to let you know that they wanted you to carry on

Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, the area in which he first gained popularity. Smith's primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient with piano, clarinet, bass guitar, drums and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style, characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery" and used multi-tracking to create vocal layers, textures and harmonies.
