Arrived at Prestwick Carr just before sunrise, and strolled down to where the owls are, loads of fieldfare in the bushes and trees and big flocks of Woodpigeon around. I arrived to find there were no owls on view, but I was rewarded with the Great Grey Shrike in the bushes in the lane. I just stood still and watched it fly up and down, waiting for the sun to come up. I am pleased I did because I got stunning views of it at close range, I watched it for about an hour and half, then the lane started to get busy and I lost sight of it eventually.
Then it was the turn of the Short Eared Owls, they spent a lot of time hunting rather than sitting today, until it rained and they went into hiding again. Super morning!
