Humphreston Farm area, Albrighton, Shropshire.

Getting a breath of air.

Blue Tit (Herrerillo Común / Parus caeruleus) collecting nest material.
Headed out of the village and crossed the A41 and walked out towards Humphreston Farm, in the first group of trees a Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla) was singing along side a couple of Common Chiffchaffs (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita), Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major) and a Dunnock (Acentor Común / Prunella modularis).
