A big Great Grey Shrike here, quickly sketched against the light...

A light pencil sketch of an exhausted Sparrowhawk..

A 1st calender male Ring Ouzel. An impossibly beuatiful thrush, wit stunning scalled breast and flanks, diffuse 'orange slice' on the breast, pale secondary panel and edges to remiges. Sadly, not sound recorded, love the call. Not as rare as some of the species seen, but very much a retina expander...

Blog updated with diaries and species seen, though still have to add a lot of photos and the vast bulk of the sound recordings..

Link here to a recording of the Richard's Pipit that flew past four of us on the morning of October 23rd...
