Boningale, Albrighton, Shropshire.

Another walk out to the Horns.

I again had a stroll up Newhouse Lane, through Boningale and down to the Pub. On the way back I came back across the fields via the Pebble Brook area.
On the way out I stopped by one of the gate ways in Newhouse Lane where I saw Common Chiffchaff (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita), Carrion Crow (Corneja Negra / Corvus corone), Jay (Arrendajo / Garrulus glandarius) x34, Common Magpie (Urraca / Pica pica), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula), Dunnock (Acentor Común / Prunella modularis), Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Lesser Black-backed Gull (Gaviota Sombria / Larus fuscus), Skylark (Alondra Común / Alauda arvensis), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis) and Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica).
Further along the lane I crossed the Holyhead road and walked down Church Lane towards the Pub and stopped in another gate way where I boosted the list with a flock of 25 or so Redwings (Zorzal Alirrojo / Turdus illacus), Common Chaffinch (Pinzón Vulgar / Fringilla coelebs), Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo), Stock Dove (Paloma Zurita / Columba oenas), a flock of 30+ flying Greylag Geese (Ansar Común / Anser anser), Jackdaw (Grajilla / Corvus monedula) and Wren (Chochin / Troglodytes troglodytes).
On the verges I also recorded Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum) and Hedge Bindweed (Calystegia sepium).
