Distant Shrike

Distant views of the Great Grey Shrike at West Hartford this morning. The wind had picked up by the time I got there, so the bird was keeping low in the hedge. Little else here, but a Stonechat was on a fence.

Great Grey Shrike
All quiet around Gateshead.


  1. Hey Rob
    Has there.been any.sightings of goldeneye at sled lane?

  2. I've not been for a while, but they should be in by now. I'll be looking on the 1st of Jan.

  3. Don't mean to bother you again, but I've been meaning to ask are there barn owls in gateshead? Or are there any signs to indicate that they maybe about?

    1. I haven't seen one for 2 years. Apparently they have had a good year elsewhere in Durham, so hopefully will reappear soon.
