There was quite a lot going on with quite a few migrants moving, like Whinchat...
Almost immediately after a walk of some 400m from the car, I could see birders and the Woodchat Shrike :-)
Anything from 50 - 150m distant, it was quite mobile but quite a showy bird (as Shrikes are!) always perching up on a good choice of bushes...
After a while, I could see a pattern forming and staked out a small clump of bushes which gave an element of cover!
It was coming nearer!
Until eventually, it was perched head on, probably about 30m away, close enough to see a bit more detail!
One brief perch in an adjacent bush ensuring all the angles were covered!
The pale scapulars showing really well, even from afar, somewhat scaly and nothing like a Red-backed juv!
And then the heavens opened! The forecast of heavy showers and thunder didn't exactly sound welcome, so it was an early finish at around 12.30, job done!
