Ok arrived and within 5 mins saw this guy, the reason for popping over to be honest. Great Grey Shrike, at some distance thanks for the guy who let me look through his scope..
Then straight over our heads was a very special bird, seen a few this year, this time being chased by a Raven
Then from where I was I could see the owls hunting down the lane, so headed down (should have gone earlier as the light dropped) and got a couple of OK shots.
Then walking back to the car I could hear a little group of Long Tailed Tits that seemed to be following me along the lane, then I spotted them
A great mini Saturday afternoon mission.....
