Albrighton, Shropshire, UK.

A day around the Village.

We got up and then spent the morning seeing family, we both went to see my Mom and then I went up to my brothers whilst Jayne went to see Barb her sister.
During the walk I noted Collared Dove (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto), Dunnock (Acentor Común / Prunella modularis), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula), Carrion Crow (Corneja Negra / Corvus corone), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major), House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Jackdaw (Grajilla / Corvus monedula), Common Starling (Estornino Pinto / Sturnus vulgaris) and Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula).
During the afternoon I took Harry, Martin and Julia's dog for a walk over the A41 bypass and along what is now named as Cordy Lane (on Google Maps) but I remember (or more accurately cannot remember it as something else) and then in to Blue House Lane and back. During our walk I saw Sparrowhawk (Gavilán Común / Accipiter nisus), Blue Tit (Herrerillo Común / Parus caeruleus), a couple of Redwings (Zorzal Alirrojo / Turdus illacus), 1 male Siskin (Lúgano / Carduelis spinus) high up in a Silver Birch and several Black-headed Gulls (Gaviota Riedora / Larus ridibundus).
Later Julia, Jayne, Barb, Martin and I headed through the village and had a nice meal at the Shrewsbury Arms Pub, a very nice way to finish our first full day.
