Wall Heath
Hoopoe showing on and off all day. Following a site visit today by the Staffsbirdnews team, please be careful of too many cars parking in the bus stop. There are other streets nearby where you could park within easy walking distance. The quarry area is crossed by a public footpath at the top but this is the birds favoured area to feed.
