Great grey shrike at Big Waters

The Sunday walk around Big Waters on New Years Day brought as a great start to the year in the form of a Great grey shrike.  It was at a bit of a distance but managed a few shots before it flew off in the direction of Prestwick Carr.  I only managed 3 shots whilst it was on the tree then 3 as it departed

We were joined by Susan, Graeme and Tony B on our wander round today so there were many eyes watching and quite a few birds were spotted but I had to leave at 1 so we only had made it about three quaters the way round when I shot off to attend to other things then go away for a few days to Liverpool so dont know if we did better than the 63 which was our previous record for New Years Day
