Great Grey Shrike still at Mynydd Marchywel

© A. John
The Great Grey Shrike was in the second of the 2 clear fell areas mentioned below, today. It showed fairly well for those joining me on the GOS field trip that was focused on seeing a Great Grey Shrike. Of the 7 that joined me today it was a lifer for 5 of them, which made the day feel extra special.
Lots of other upland species performed for us today in the stunning weather. Of particular note, generally lots of Stonechat pairs about, including some truly stunning males.
No further sign of the prob Two-barred Crossbill during extensive searches over the last 2 days.
