Litlle Brown (Shrike) Job

News broke late in the day that the first Yorkshire, Brown Shrike had turned up at Old Fall hedge on Flamborough Head. After much deliberation and dicsussion I worked out I could head over at first light and be back at work for 9:30, which was entirely acceptable. What if the bird didn’t show? What if it turned up again later? I wouldn’t have another chance to twtich this cracking shrike. Luckily it turned up just as I pulled in to the car park at about 7:15AM sat in the same bush as the commoner red backed shrike. The crowds were delighted.
