Albrighton, Shropshire, UK.

A walk around the village and more time with family.

In the morning Brenda dropped Jayne and me in to Wolverhampton to pick up the last bits we needed before our return flight tomorrow. By luch time we were back in Albrighton and we had a walk up to the Chuch at Donnington via the village pool, so that Jayne could visit the family stones and plaques, we later went to St Marys Church to check on my farther's Plaque. It was nice to have a walk around the area that I had grown up in but as always it is quite depressing when you see all the changes. As with most places most changes have not been for the better but I think that the most notable thing was the amount of rubbish everywhere, the worst example was around the St Cuthberts well and Donnington Pool areas. These spots had away been kept nice and well presserved.
Later we again visited Mark, Nicky and the boys before getting ready and going for a meal with my Mother and her partner John. We had a nice evening and then went back to Brenda's. During the walk around the village I picked up Fieldfare (Zorzal Real / Turdus pilaris), Redwing (Zorzal Alirrojo / Turdus iliacus), Song (Zorzal Común / Turdus philomelos) and Mistle Thrushs (Zorzal Charlo / Turdus viscivorus), Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos), Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinula Chloropus), Pheasant (Faisán Vulgar / Phaisanus colchicus), Jay (Arrendajo / Garrulus glandarius), Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulga / Falco tinnunculus), Common Starling (Estornino Pinto / Sturnus vulgaris) and Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris).
