Woodchat Shrike at Llangennith Moors (cont.)

Paul Tyrrell wrote: '...myself and Amanda were lucky enough to get down there today just as the weather cleared. The bird was in the same area as reported yesterday and was showing well from 11:30am- 1pm until female merlin turned up and sent the shrike, meadow pipit, skylark and stonechat for cover. Having had good views and one or two distant photo shots we decided to head back to Broughton, as we passed a bramble bush close to the path the shrike suddenly popped up no more than ten feet away from me...'
