After previously failing to see the Great Grey Shrike in Langdale Forest, a second visit proved more successful, with the bird sitting out on the highest branches and flying from different trees within an area no more than 1/4 Mile Square. The bird is frequenting the Maw Rigg area and showed well this morning. It doesn’t appear to like being approached though, so views of only 100M through the scope were the closest you could get.
Siskins and Crossbills were also present in good numbers.
