Great grey.

Bassingham shrike.

I bumped into Oliver Woodman who was visiting Marston this morning. He’s the chap that found the great grey shrike at Bassingham. He informed me that the bird was still present, so I bombed off for a look. It was on show straight away, I took a few photos through the ‘scope. The shrike was swaying in the gusty wind. At one point it caught a mouse, then disappeared for a while. Upon checking my camera shots I noticed that the bird had a ring on it’s right leg, I managed to read three numbers, possibly a fourth, which I’ve submitted for info. Will be nice to find out where it’s come from. Keep you informed….
