Donington Nature Reserve, Albrighton, Shropshire. UK.

A rather damp, cold and grey walk around the reserve and up to the Church yard.

Along the stream.
I walked down to the reserve through the village, I first of all checked the pool and track to the locked gate onto the secured part of the reserve seeing Carrion Crow (Corneja Negra / Corvus corone), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Jackdaw (Grajilla / Corvus monedula), Common Magpie (Urraca / Pica pica), Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula) and lots of Redwings (Zorzal Alirrojo / Turdus illacus).
A few of the Redwings (Zorzal Alirrojo / Turdus illacus).
I crossed the road and went onto the field and walked along the stream picking up Blue (Herrerillo Común / Parus caeruleus) and Long-tailed Tit (Mito / Aegithalos caudatus), Wren (Chochin / Troglodytes troglodytes), Siskin (Lúgano / Carduelis spinus), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris), Common Chaffinch (Pinzón Vulgar / Fringilla coelebs), House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Dunnock (Acentor Común / Prunella modularis), Song (Zorzal Común / Turdus philomelos) and Mistle Thrush (Zorzal Charlo / Turdus viscivorus), Nuthatch (Trepador Azul / Sitta europaea), Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo), 3x Skylarks (Alondra Común / Alauda arvensis) and lots more Redwings which flew in.

I walked back up through the village and returned to my Moms were I got ready to go out to Next door bar to see the Dirty Rocking Scoundrels with some of Jayne's brothers and sister's.
As expected we had a great night, good company, good food and brilliant music and entertainment.
