A change is as good as a rest, as they say, and so instead of going straight ahead down Turls Hill, I turned left into Whites Drive, for today’s walk.
You could drive along Bilston Street, and even Queen’s Road, and not realise that it’s there. Apart from the housing that leads from the junction with the former, it’s a hidden gem.
Along with Setton Drive, it forms the western boundary of Turls Hill, and as you can see from the video below, it looks very rural. You wouldn’t think you were in the Black Country.
The highlight of today’s walk were the pheasants, with both the male and the female showing really well. If you’ve just picked up the story, type ‘Turls Hill pheasants’ in the search engine below.
The birds seen were: blackbird, wood pigeon, magpie, robin, pheasant, dunnock, blue tit, starling,house sparrow.
There were two juvenile robins being fed by their parents. It made me think I need to take my camcorder sometimes, as opposed to filming solely with my iPhone.
