11th July 2015

With news coming thru of a 1st Summer Red-footed Falcon nr Stoke,Staffs on the Fri morning I decided a leisurely drive up on the Sat morning rather than the hectic afternoon rush hour on the M6... Donna & myself arrived on site just after 9am & were rewarded with decent views a good bird & only my 4th in Britain & the 1st for a good few years but more importantly a lifer for Donna & a bonus tick with a Black Redstart sharing the same fence line for her taking her upto 224 Species with 220 this year.........

2nd July 2015

With an unexpected 2 days lay off from work due to problems on the French side of the channel causing parts shortages I decided to give the Melodious another bash, I picked Donna up & we arrived on site about 2-30 with no 1 else present we set up & apart from a cpl of birders who came & went we had the bird pretty much to ourselves!! After 20+ visits the bird finally popped up 25ft away out in the open on the gorse!!! Job done ...............
