Telford and Albrighton, Shropshire, UK.

Visiting Jayne's Brother in Telford and then back to the village.

Jayne woke not feeling too good so we rang the local doctors surgery and they very helpfully fitted her in to see a Doctor with in just a few minutes so we were soon on our way round for the appointment, on the way I saw 6 Lesser Redpolls (Pardillo Sizerín / Carduelis flammea) in a roadside Silver Birch and on the return walk a very smart Fieldfare (Zorzal Real / Turdus pilaris).
Later Barb, Jayne and I headed over to see their brother David who had just come out of hospital and after a successful operation. We spent an hour there and we were all very pleased to see how well he was looking considering what he had just been through.
On the return journey to Albrighton we passed Priorslee levelling pool on the way and I saw several species as we flashed by including Tufted Ducks (Porrón Monudo / Aythya fuligula), Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos), Common Pochard (Porrón Común / Aythya ferina), Goosander (Serreta Grande / Mergus merganser), Eurasian Coot (Focha Común / Fulica atra) and Mute Swan (Cisne Vulgar / Cygnus olor).
