Early on saturday morning I went to Cannock Chase.
Parked at the Seven Springs car park and did the walk to the Stepping Stones my main target was to get a decent shot of a male Redstart and if I could get a good shot of a Tree Pipit and see a Wood Warbler and a Pied Flycatcher as well that would be very good indeed.
How did I get on? Pretty poorly as it turned out.Started well when I soon found a Tree Pipit and managed to get a decent shot but things went downhill after that.I did locate a male Redstart near the Stepping Stones and what a cracking looking bird it was but in an hour of following it around the miserable so and so stayed very high in some Alders and I was unable to get even a few crappographs.
I did not see a Pied Flycatcher or a Wood Warbler despite searching for ages.
I must go again soon because I think I might have gone too early in the month for the Redstarts.
