Many thanks to Ralph Jones for these fine pix of the young Red Backed Shrike in the dunes at Ainsdale this afternoon - a great find by Andrew Spottiswood of Planet Spottiswood fame!
Didn't get a chance to catch up with it - I had to prepare for an event at the Atkinson this evening, but it's great for a quality drift bird to turn up in the dunes - who's gonna find a Yellow Browed Warbler next?
If anyone has any updates on the shrike please let me know - it'd be great for folk to see a cracker like this locally.
Mipits, Grey Wags n Swallows pushing through early today too.
Thanks to Andrew and Ralph - well done!!!
Although it does raise the bar a bit for my Vis Mig event on Tuesday.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
