9th May 2009

Went to Earlswood during the morning to meet John Yardley for a trip birding in Worcestershire, and had 2 Common Sandpipers at Engine Pool, as well as 15+ Swifts and 8 Commic Terns, whilst making my way to the meet-up spot.
Back at Earlswood just after 4:30 pm, saw a first-summer Mute Swan at Terry's Pool, and from the Malthouse Lane causeway counted 5+ Common Terns, 7 Herring Gulls, 5 Lesser Black-backed Gulls, 20+ Swifts, 30+ Swallows, 12+ Sand Martins and 2 House Martins.

P.S. Saw my first Hobby over the Moors Pools at Upton Warren (Worcestershire) today!
