Took another trip over to Kingsbury this morning but didn't even stop the car as the fog was that thick on Bodymoor Heath Rd,however this afternoon it seemed to have lifted quite a lot!! but not at Kingsbury where the birds had departed,no sign of the Bewick's so i dropped in at Coton where Archie Archer had them flying in several mins before,a few quick record shots & the birds were off again (no doubt back to the grazing fields!!)
