16th March 2012

Stayed local today looking for migrants in the Tame Valley,quite a few Chiffchaff now singing but apart from that very quiet!! I'd just dropped in at Coleshill GPs when a txt came thru from Tom Perrins alerting me to the fact a Northern Wheatear was at Wishaw (not familiar with the area so a few missed turns etc before i pulled up alongside Tom) Tom duly pointed the bird out before he returned to domestic duties!!! I set the camera up & waited for the bird to come closer,which it did several times but normally behind the car or at acute angles where i just couldn't get a shot off!! after about an hr the bird finally popped up directly to the side of me allowing a few shots!!
