Popped out during lunch yesterday to do a spot of birding and so a work mate could try out his new big lens.
Headed for Radial Park which for anyone one not knowing where this is, its by the Stoke City ground.
It's not one of those places you look at think what a great birding spot, but it does have the right elements.
There are a couple of pools around the site and parking up near them we started to scan around to see what we could find.
At first it looked like Gulls, Swans and Coots were the order of the day but looking harder we did find a few other things. A couple of Linnets sat on a pile of buidlers rubble, a few Pied Wagtails plus 3 Little Ringed Plovers by the edge of the pool, a year tick for me which was nice and unexpected, but as I don't know the area you never know what you are going to find.
