A bit of a busy weekend so very little birding done. Saturday was the first British Waterways fishing match, did rubbish. Sunday I was working but I was up very early, dog needed walking so we had a good walk around Alrewas and the fields. Birds noted were Wren, Collared Dove, House Sparrow, Starling, Blackbird, Chaffinch, Woodpigeon, Robin, Magpie, Skylark, Chiffchaff, Common Whitethroat, Carrion Crow, Mallard, Goldfinch, Song Thrush, Moorhen, Pheasant, Long-tailed Tit, Blue Tit, Black Headed Gull, Common Tern, Coot, Sedge Warbler, Cormorant, Jackdaw, Great Tit, Pied Wagtail, Linnet, Grey Heron, Blackcap, Greenfinch, House Martin, Swift, Swallow and Dunnock. Not bad for a couple of hours first thing before work.
