Cannock Chase 17-4-11

This weekend seen me return back to Nuneaton for my Birthday,so a few drinks with club members and my partner Mandy at the Taproom.
With a sunbathed Sunday morning Dave Hutton came and picked Mandy & myself up and we headed over to Cannock Chase for a nice stroll around with no heavy camera gear which was nice.
Shortly after leaving the carpark we could hear a Wood Warbler singing but with the noise of the guns going off at the range we carried on for the stepping stones.
With plenty of Green Hairstreaks on the wing which we stopped and had a look at for a while before carrying on,we was soon viewing a male Redstart singing from the top of a pine tree and Tree Pipits.On arriving at the stepping stones we set about looking for Pied Flycatchers but with no luck,so after a while we started to head back picking up a pair of Cuckoo & Willow Warblers also
other birds included Blackcaps & Buzzard.

We arrived back at my parents and arranged for a few pints down at the Kingswood Tavern later for a Birthday drink which went down well :)
