Male Grey  Wagtail  -   Carding Mill Valley, Church Stretton

 

 

  Grey Wagtail - Motacilla cinerea

 Can be seen all year round in Shropshire. Carding Mill Valley at Church Stretton is an ideal place to look for them on the short grassy areas grazed by the sheep and also at the close by mill pond and rocky stream. In the spring nesting birds can usually be seen at the Bedlam Furnaces in Ironbridge as they bring mayflies caught on the river Severn to their young in nests built in cavities in the old furnace. They can be seen and photographed from the adjacent car park without causing any disturbance to the birds.
