City Challenge update: Northern Wheatear!

Since returning from Slovenia last week, I have been checking out the Soar Valley for more ticks to my city list.
So from the previous weekend before Slovenia I have added the 8 Garganey, Shelduck, Whitethroat,Sedge and Reed Warbler at Watermead CP South.
Then added Green Sandpiper and Little Ringed Plover at an undisclosed site in the city boundaries. This followed with Swallow, Common Sandpiper and Common Tern a couple of days later at Watermead South.
Then yesterday checking out Birstall Meadows I found a corking Male Wheatear feeding in the fields near the shoreline! So with these sightings I'm now on 90 species for my City list!!
