Two shrike day

A pleasant late autumn seawatch from Whitburn this morning, with boat-loads of Pink-footed Geese heading south. Full results here.

From here to the Leas where the 'Daurian' Isabelline Shrike was performing well in much better light.

I headed up to Prestwick Carr for another crack at the Great Grey Shrike. In luck this time and the shrike was showing well, although distantly, to the east of the sentry box.

Called in at Shibdon on the way home where there was the first Green Sandpiper of the year and 7 Black-tailed Godwit.
