The Great Grey Shrike was again present today in fields adjacent to Brook Furlong Lane. Initially relocated by Don Weedon then seen later by Frank Duff. The bird is (apparently) in splendid plumage but wandering widely.
If you take the opportunity and visit the marsh tomorrow, please bear in mind that particular area could be used by the Hovercraft company and the pheasant/game shooters.
Park on Marsh Lane and follow the road over the motorway bridge and continue straight ahead. Follow the pot-holed track looking for the shrike to your right and particularly where the green box (old birdlog) is nailed to the telegraph pole. Hopefully the Red-necked Grebe will be available to view on the river further along the track.
