Red-backed Shrike

Made it down to Spurn for 5.30pm. Much later than originally planned. Life got in the way!

Took the hound along the canal. The main hope was a Red-backed Shrike, as there had been a few lingering.

I soon picked up a male but he was unfortunately showing at a fair distance (c100yds)...

So, just for record purposes I used the super zoom again...

Three days off now. Hoping (as always) for a BIG finish to our belated Spring.

Below (for inspiration) are some beauties that have turned up on the first of June...

Ruppell’s Warbler

White-crowned Black Wheatear

White-throated Needletail

Blue-cheeked Bee-eater

Audouin’s Gull - Beacon Ponds

Black Lark

Rock Bunting

Not bad! Let's get out there...
