Great Grey Shrike at Hothfield Common

                                          26th November : Hothfield Common


Great Grey Shrike.

On Saturday 26th November a trip to Hothfield Common was very successful , i have never been to this site before so many thanks to Neil Burt for site info.

We eventually found the area that the Great Grey Shrike visits on it's quite wide ranging circuit and after a short wait we were treated to some excellent views of this superb bird.

The Great Grey Shrike remained low down for some of the time before flying up high onto an Oak tree.
