Mosleden Quarry area

This is on the main road to Buckstones, on the right after crossing the motorway above Ringstone.

Male twite singing from the wire near the entrance tonight at 6pm. Any other twite sightings in the area?
(Marshalls have asked me to look out for them on their land and maybe start a feeding station - no general access as yet, but I'll try and get it for the bird and wildlife groups.)

The fields opposite look good for twite, with dandelion and sorrel mixed in.
Linnets are feeding there already, in fact there were 30- 40 either linnets or twite over the other side yesterday when it was raining.

Other birds: Willow Warbler, Swallow, Blackbird, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Dunnock, Kestrel, Meadow Pipit, Skylark, Oystercatcher, Mallard, plus the usual corvids, Pheasant.
