Back on the Patch

Spent the day down the road. First stop was Easington Cemetery but no sign of the GGS. Nice Brambling (P.166) and Redstart though. Plenty of thrushes but couldn't pick out a Ring Ouzel...I (very) rarely do!

About an hour later I managed to locate the Shrike (P.167) at the back of the Cemetery...

Always a star bird, I watched it for over an hour feeding in the immediate vicinity. It had a particular liking for bees.

Finished off at Easington Church and quickly connected with one of the Black Redstarts (P.168) that have been present there for several days. I had at least 4 birds.

Good news on my Scilly list but more of that tomorrow...
