Wednesfield, West Mids, Not so Great Britain.

Travelling to Barbs from Birmingham Airport.

Jayne and I travelled back to the UK for a few days to go to a family wedding in Builth Wells in Wales. After an uneventful flight and train journey to Wolverhampton we meet Jayne sister Barbara and caught the bus back to her house where we were staying for the first part of our stay. On the way I picked up several Carrion Crows (Corneja Negra / Corvus corone) a bird that I do not see back home very often, these were seen along side Jackdaw (Grajilla / Corvus monedula), Common Magpie (Urraca / Pica pica), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Collared Dove (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto), Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos), Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinulas chloropus), Common Starling (Estornino Pinto / Sturnus vulgaris) and in the garden a male Sparrowhawk (Gavilán Común / Accipiter nisus) flushed out a couple of the local Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula).
