Watched the Great Grey Shrike from Drinkwaters from 16.45 to 1800hrs, easily picked up against the mostly leafless trees. It flew around from tree to tree, occasionally swooping & hovering a little, always watchful. At one point I heard its squeaky cheep note and watched it vocalising - this seemed to attract a Reed Bunting! The GGS turned and looked, seemed nonplussed, the RB flew off. Nice to sit and watch several Curlew too.
Yesterday had a 5-flock of Greenfinch in and around the garden, not seen these birds in the garden for a long, long time.
As others have posted, Wheatear back on the moors. I've noticed Blackcap and Willow Warbler in Brinscall since the 10th.
