Prestwick Carr

Heading North up the bridle path, I soon spotted four or five Buzzards perched on isolated bushes on the edge of the wood. This one had a smart light coloured bib.

On the other side of the path a Kestrel perched on a fencepost.

and there were good numbers of Fieldfare and Redwings. A couple of Song Thrush brightened the walk

I had been giving every hedge line bush a good thrashing with the bins as I walked up and down the bridle path, to ensure I didn't miss anything, but when I got back to the crossroads I could see PCF scanning the same hedge line and sure enough the Great Grey Shrike had been there all the time

As the light faded I managed to catch sight of two perched Short-eared Owls before heading home
