Wishmore Bottom (10/10/10)

A gorgeous afternoon and news broke of a Great Grey Shrike (165) at Wishmore Bottom. Got in the car and walked out to the central area of open heath where flushed the bird from some small trees into another tree.

Set up my 'scope but couldn't find it and then noticed it had flown into a large dead tree on the western side.

Reasonable views were obtained with another birder and once he departed I got a bit closer and took a photograph.

Also at this site was a Kestrel and one Stonechat.
