The forecast was not good and the clocks went forward too, so an hour less sleep, but I was so fed up with yesterdays disappointing birding day, I thought sod it I'm going. It was still dark and there was only me on the road for a lot of the way.
7.30am and I was in position. Then the rain came. More than an hour later there it was, sat right next to my car. So up came the camera, and here's what I got. I want to improve on these images at some point. Some sunshine would be a good starter, but these will do as record shots of my first ever Great Grey Shrike.
Grainy image, but really shows of that killer bill.
You can see the rain slanting in from left to right here, but composition is a little better.
