Wood Larks still at Overton, Gower

This afternoon three Wood Larks were present at Overton, Gower. Originally, a group of five was found by CDB on 22nd Nov 2014 but by 6th Dec 2014 their number had fallen to three. Nice then to find today that the three have chosen to stay in the area and made it safely into 2015.
Stop off searches for the Great Grey Shrike at Pengwern Common and Fairwood Common were made on the way to Overton and on the way back with no positive news to report. Hopefully the Shrike is still around and with so much suitable habitat available in the wider area I wouldn't be surprised if it turns up again.
