Great Grey Shrike, Waddington Fell, Lancashire
October 18, 2010:
Apparently first sighted yesterday, the Great Grey Shrike was still on the fell-side this morning. It is presumably the same bird which spent much of the late winter here earlier in the year. Today it was very mobile, occasionally hunting from post tops along the wall crossing the moor to the west of the road but often it would disappear over the crest of the hill for long periods. It never came within less than 200 metres so that any photographs had to be taken at extreme range.
