Sunday 27th March.
Spent hour or so looking for goshawk from Raptor Watchpoint - possibly saw 1 saw it fly into a tree where it perched for a 15 mins but it was about a mile away and the heat shimmer was bad. Also saw Short Eared Owl, 4 buzzards, Kestrel. I then walked up to the site where the G G Shrike was - this was my second attempt. It is a long uphill walk (I measured it on GPS and it was 3 mile). But unlike last time the shrike was showing - perched on top of a very tall dead tree - which it seemed to favour.
It did come down and perched in other trees - but I was unable to get close to it - photos are from about 50 yards away and it was 40 foot up. But it was great to see it. Also had 2 lesser Redpoll and 7 crossbills
