Last year I met @1stbirdoftheday for the first time via Twitter. He visited the pits one summer evening so he kindly returned the favour by showing me round Charlecote and surrounding area.
Whilst their Charlecote patch is very spread out (car essential) and has no water there are some fantastic areas which wildlife blossoms. Species recorded included two Little Owl, 250+ Linnet, 50+ Yellowhammer, 10+ Brambling, two Corn Bunting, 20 Reed Bunting, 10 Lesser Redpoll and three Roe Deer. Just shows what you can see in an hour.
