Steppe Grey Shrike.
An early morning trip to Burnham Norton in Norfolk yesterday morning the 11th October proved very successful with excellent views of the Steppe Grey Shrike which was a lifer , the Shrike showed fantastically well most of the time i was there , here are a few of the photos i took :
Awesome tinge to plumage.
Eating a meal worm.
Pale base to bill.
Awesome wing & tail markings.
I watched this awesome bird for over an hour as it fed on meal worms and beetles , other birds of note in the area were huge skeins of Pink Footed Geese . unfortunately time was against me today so i headed back to Sussex and called into Tide Mills near Newhaven and had excellent views of Tawny Pipit which was a very welcome year tick for .
Showed really well.
I also had a Raven pass overhead " Conking as it went " .
